Cycles Fire

Just downloaded 2.71 today and tried a little fire simulation. I’d say it’s just as good at rendering the fire itself as BI was, no better, though it does now cast light, which is obviously a must. In any case, I’m pleased with the result I got:

Sorry about the noise.

I created a Bunsen burner type flame by using blender 2.66 and setting the flow object to mesh and making the heating something crazy, like 10 or 50 and it was really fast. you could improve the materials with no smoke and thin, blue fire.
