In 2008 I created this video as a little demonstration of Visual FX and Live Action Integration.
I captured this with a handycam, and I used 3Ds Max and Combustion to create the effects and integration.

For the destruction of the buildings I used Reactor and Maxscript for dynamics, and Particle Flow for the particles (i.e. debris, smoke, missiles).
I used Afterburn and FumeFX to create the Fire/Smoke effects.

I rendered it in layers and passes in V-Ray.
For the camera movement and the composition I used Combustion.
