Who’d have thought it? With only a few lines of very unscary code we can make smoke, sparks, explosions, splashes and bubbles. Creating a particle system may sound scary, but it’s not rocket science. With some very simple programming, you can create a variety of different effects such as smoke, explosions, bubbles, and even fire. The basics of physics are covered in a very clear and easy-to-understand way.

In this new updated version of this popular presentation, our code has been converted to AS3, which gives us 10 times as many particles as the AS2 version—1000% extra!

Audience participation is actively encouraged, and audience submissions are the highlight of the show, so bring your laptops. Get the sourcecode from
