What do you think?
In 2008, CGI nukes are not better.
The explosion digs a crater like Castle Bravo's

Reminds me a bit of the nuclear explosions in Terminator 3. Sorry, I'm not entirely convinced. There's one explosion, but many shockwaves and the mushshroom cloud seems a bit strange: As if the stem is glowing, and not the shroom itself. Although, I don't think the irregularities are a result of lacking sfx-capabilities. Rather the creators just didn't watch enough original footage.

Sorry Canopus, no disrespect intended but that isn't the best I've seen. In fact I thought the series was a bit disapointing too, nowhere near enough stuff getting nuked
I don't know if you have seen this, it may have already been posted, but it's the best I've see so far other than the T2 sequence.
The post on Youtube is pretty funny too. Accurate description(ish), wildly inaccurate title and then the usual barrage of infant school level comments.
Did you know a nuke with a carbanization zone of 3 miles has more pollution than New York City in 3 years. And that was just an animation. Nuclear devices which are very small are the 21st centry wepons. They would probaly be used for military installations. Watch out Iran and Russia.

Actually that was my point too ^^ (I meant "not better than before"!)
Excellent work! And very comical description. "More pollution than NYC in three years". That's a benchmark!
It doesn't have the grain of superproductions, but the artist visibly studied nukes better than the T3 guys.

Please, please. You are all overlooking a major difference with this explosion. The different dynamics involved with a human device can't be compared to more conventional weapons. The early development of the shock front is dependant upon the skin color, hair density, freckle coverage, clothing type, etc.
