Fireplace by HappyDay.
Well, this is what I actually had in mind yesterday. I’ve worked with fire before and though I could pull this off in time. Well, I underestimated the time I needed to tweak the flame settings and vastly underestimated the render time :).
Took me about 1.5 h of work and 5 h of render time. This could actually do with higher resolution for the fire and more samples. The fire doesn’t look as nice as I thought it would.
The problem for me to work with fire is the rending time, because my computer is very slow and it takes some days to render all the work.
