Now that T3 is out, and I'm no longer at ILM, I thought you might like to know that EI was once again used in T3. Two shots in particular come to my mind. The first was the prototype hunter killer lab where the HK is doing some target practice and hovering over a type of circular bay, attached by cables...and secondly, the orbital end shot of the múltiple nuke rounds hitting the earth's surface. (A co-worker and I actually did that one). Interestingly enough, no particle systems were used for those explosions. They were all created with displacement maps and Image2mesh and some fancy compositing. Imagine that.
I suppose I forgot to mention EI's useage in a couple of other small movies...Episode II, Men in Blak 2, K-19....and on and on...
Algo debe de saber el muchacho...
