Right, bascally i want to do a text effect where there is an explosion behind it and the text explodes into the camera with flaming bits coming off of it. There is an idtentical effect from "armageddon" in the title credits where this happens and i want to pull it off. I get the shatter effect to work, but its just getting the flaming bits on i am having problems with. Or is there another way apart from shatter that will blow the text apart
