Looking better, although the glass shards from the lamp seem to have no gravity applied to them. The smoke from the explosion and after the explosion rises to fast IMO. It still looks 2d to me....

Looking good, however for me, the move itself is too extreme to really look effective using AE's 3d capability. This kind of move would benefit from photomapping onto geometry in a 3d application. If...
