Torch fire
« on: April 03, 2017, 12:38:09 PM »
Hey,

Have anyone tried to create a fire effect in TG? A fire on a very miniscule scale, a flame on a torch to be precise, is what I am after. All suggestions are welcome!

Depending on your usage, you may just use an image map (with transparency) of a fire (if obtainable), and then apply a luminosity value to it to get it to 'glow'.

Theoretically, you could create a great effect of flame on torch by utilizing carefully crafted cloud layers (localized, of course) and a lightsource.

Short answer: no.  ;)

Oh, I just love your short answer. ;D

I did not think about image map with transparency but it sounds fine. Finding the actual image may be the biggest trouble.

I also thought about using clouds but the torch flame is just too tiny. It is how big - 20, 40 centimeters? :) I'm not sure if the cloud layer will be able to handle this. Besides, the flame will be spherical, unless noise is stretched.

Ahh, great! Fantastic stuff Bobby! This should do nicely with just minimum processing in PS.

I'm still thinking about a tiny, glowing displaced sphere though... but the shape... ::) Probably won't work too good.

Happy to help, glad they're useful.
