Lastly select the sphere and right click on it and deselect 'Renderable' from under 'Rendering Control' so it doesn't appear in your renders.

Now we're pretty much done. You can either render your explosion out and take a look and continue to play with it, or else throw in some explosion debris and a camera shake and maybe a building and get to work on your own hollywood movie. One thing to play with is the attentuation settings in the lights properties.

You can make some really rich explosions which work quite well with turning from fire into smoke with dimming the edges and only illuminating the inside of the explosion. Anyway you can get the max scene I made below as well as some example animations, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need any help...
