Robo-Hulk Smash! When it came to showing the crazy-mad mechanoid busting through Gene and Jenny's improvised barricade, AfterEffects provided a very handy technique to that effect: Shatter! When you attach that to an object, it divides it up into a series of jagged fragments that can then be induced (by fiddling with the effect controls and animation keyframing) to separate from one another at high velocity; propelled outwards - or upwards, or sideways - in a fashion that handily simulates somethin' gettin' dang blowed-up! Timing it to coincide with A) the robot arms thrusting into the frame and B) Gene and Jenny freaking out and running away, all the elements combined to create a nifty little scene of high drama!
