How Firework Shells WorkIn FWsim, you can build your own virtual fireworks by combining components.
In order to create your own realistic fireworks, it is helpful to know how real fireworks work.
Pyrotechnicians don't use rockets, but shells. FWsim can simulate both shells and rockets.
Multibreak ShellsMultibreak shells explode multiple times: A part of the shell explodes and releases stars, while another part continues flying upwards. These shells have a cylindrical shape.
Simulation in FWsimFWsim simulates the shells physically accurate. You can select the launch velocity and the size of the shell. Alternatively, you can just select the size of the shell, and FWsim chooses all the parameters automatically.
To create a multibreak shell, simply add several explosions to a shell. For more information, please refer to the Effect Editor Manual.
