Hi, my name is Bulatov Evgeni, I'm an artist at the game development studio Extreme Developers. In this lesson I'll show you my way of creating fire in the particles
editor Magic Particles. Particles are an integral part of computer graphics. Cinema, TV, and video games are using them to create impressive effects. Magic
Particles is a powerful and handy tool for creating special effects that we've chosen over several other editors. I'll try to give you some basic ideas concerning fire creation (backed by definite
directions), so that you could go further in this area by yourself. The particles are not limited to the fire only, there is a whole world of wonderful effects. In the download here.
Experimenting with your results you can make the fire as fierce as a forest fire or calm as a gas stove fire. You can make it brighter, dimmer, quicker or slower. Real fire is sometimes very
different and having toyed with the parameters you can make it the way you wish.
In conclusion I would like to thank Yasha a.k.a Snork, Alexei a.k.a. Odin_KG and Masha Zaitseva for the help in the lesson creation.
Ask your questions and put you comments.
With best wishes Evgeni Vendigo Bulatov.
