oops sorry hehe, erm.. well, you could set up your scene so what happens to
the shards of glass isn't shown just after it all breaks up. otherwise
probably are stuck with hand keyframing them, thats why something like
Impact would work fine, though unless your making a LOT of money from this,
its price is a bit overpowering, but it does do the trick, infact a tut with
it has a demolision ball smashing through a brick wall, same principle
really. I'm not sure if you could use particles for it though, ok, probably
could, but I imagine it would be a real struggle to get it just right and
blow them apart convincingly, shame too
