Creating a high speed impact effect

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

I have a picture from the recent DART satellite impact from NASA (see below). 

And I wonder, if there is a way to recreate this impact-streaks-effect in Houdini. 

I've created a particles simulation already but I don't really know how to achive these impact streaks. Tried to drive a smoke sim on those particles to then use this pyro sim to drive the same particle sim ontop of it. But I kinda failed.

Now I am asking this forum to help me to recreate this effect. How would you do that? 

Please only explained answers! 

Thanks in Advance

Don't simulate pyro for this one, just use rasterize from attribute. In a large-scale explosion from a far distance, you can't see the smoke-like behavior of the explosion like the explosion of stars.
