I’m trying to make a flaming blade for a sword, and animate it.
I managed to do this easily thanks to awesome tutorials on the net.
However, I am now tring to make the fire spread over the blade (frame 1, the blade emits no fire, frame 50 the blade emits fire from handle to half-length, frame 100 the blade is completely on fire, then burns till frame 250).
I tried to use a build effect on the emmiter, but it didn’t work.
I’ve heard that it was feasible with an “Unborn” blend texture, but I conuldn’t find anything useful on google.
I’d like that someone explains me how to do that or point me to a good tutorial, it’d be awesome.
