Lately I’ve been working on a website for a client of mine and she asked me if I could make a title animation of some sort to make it look like it was on fire. -???!!! I told her I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do that, but that I would see what I could do (I never even mentioned to her that I was planning on using Blender to make it).
Using the tutorial “Burn Them All” by François Grassard (aka CoyHot) from the May 2008 issue of Blender Art Mag, I’ve been able to make a flaming title that looks fairly convincing. I still have some work to do on it (such as the outline shape of the flames), but it is still pretty cool as it is.
I rendered it at 2560px wide so that the flames would be at the proper scale compared to the rest of the image. see it in full-res on my blog
