Ok, I have used After Effects for a while now, and consider myself very familiar with the software overall. However, there is one thing AE can't do well that I find myself needing - 3D Physics. Let me explain... I want to create my own effects for buildings falling, explosions, car crashes, etc. AE doesn't have any good (if any) effects to make 3D animations for destroying stuff. I have looked at 3DS Max, however I am not sure if that software does what I need. I would like to create a physics-based explosion, then import that into AE so I can do further editing.

What software do I need?

Yes, I have briefly considered it, but I read somewhere it doesn't have good integration with After Effects. Would you recommend Element 3D?
