Another example scene with a tower blowing up into pieces. Only Maya 2009+ passes system is used now.
P.S. Keep in mind that Sun&Sky system used in this scene creates a gamma correction lens shader for your camera that needs to be disabled/disconnected if you want to render the scene with lm2DMV shader. Passes on the other hand will ignore it, so no need to bother.
Project files for this and previous examples are available here:
