Explosion of imported image?

I’m sure it’s been asked and answered, but I can’t seem to find it. How do I ‘explode’ an imported image. I just can’t seem to find anything on how to create an explosion… Basically I am (trying) to make a boot animation (for Android) that explodes the Apple icon. So I have a black background and the Apple logo imported, now I am stuck. I am attaching a screenshot of what I have ATM

P.S.: I understand the whole spam prevention thing, as I run a website myself, but the 3 anti-spam things? It’s nuts that it would even be necessary to have 2.

By ‘explode’ do you mean breaking/shattering it into pieces?

I would start by creating and animating each broken piece individually.

You can create a broken piece by masking a piece of the image. See Basic Masking.

Once you can mask a piece, then you animate that piece flying away towards the edge of the canvas.

Repeat that for as many pieces you want to have. You may need to duplicate the imported image several times to build all the pieces.

I mean as a bomb… But the breaking may work too and it would be easier. Will check out the shattering to see how it looks.
