Hi folks, me beeing a newbie to this stuff, by chance I came across this tut and the fire effect. I was fascinated by DominatorGTR's burning planet, so I asked him for a tut. I am so glad he answered me with a description of the necessary steps. And now I want to share his posting with you since I am sure some of you are also new to this. Here it is, thanx again to DominatorGTR !!
