Nuclear Explosion - Composite Layer With Alpha

Now that's a nice one. It's a volumetric rendering sequence of a... well, not a smokey tree which grows as a timelapse into the sky ;) - no, it's a nuclear explosion cloud rendering. This Explosion yields between 5 to 8 kilotons (less than the hiroshima bomb) and would be produced by a "tactical nuclear warhead" with a relatively low yield.
It had a somehow complex scene setup and took ages to render (okay... 11 hours with a 1080p resolution). The Alpha is added at the end of the sequence and has a really nice volumetric flow. I use it myself for my own short movie projects or for a "just for fun" composite project.

There is a fully composited Scene with this Explosion, right here:

Resolution Guide:

4k: The highest-quality, premium video size at 4x the pixels of standard HD resolutions. Get the sharpest possible image and best color depth by integrating 4k footage into your creative work. For further editing control, look for the “R3D” file type, if available. 4k clips are usually recommended for high-end commercial use, within the limits of the item’s releases and royalty-free license.

HD (High Definition or Hi-Def): The hi-res industry standard in 1080 & 720 sizes. HD is the best size for modern TVs, general video streaming (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), and is also generally applied in commercial & editorial uses within stated legal limits.

SD (Standard Definition): Standard def is the traditional size of TVs up until the mid-2000s. Currently, SD is the minimum quality needed to digitally stream content, and usually less expensive than HD or 4K. SD is also ideal for personal creative projects.
