This is a Cycles test… seems all I do now a days is render tests. Blender development is so fast all I have time to do is to test new features, I’m having so much fun.
The flame is of cores a picture of an actual flame that I have applied emission to. Also the top of the matches need some bump mapping but that I didn’t get to work. It took about one hour to render with 1500 cycles at 1920x1080 resolution, I think without Cuda support.
The matchbox design (designer Einar Nerman) is an old Swedish design that I really like, Solstickan is also a foundation supporting research on childhood diseases. A certain amount of each matchbox sold goes to the foundation.
Thanks for looking!
