Tramojo's Fire effect

Hi! This is a tut for making fire... and yes, I am aware that there are a few fire tut's out there.

But hey... if there's several ways of starting a fire in real life, there should be room for another way of making fire in Paint.NET :wink:

This tut should give you something like this:

Now, this is what you need of 3rd-party plugins:

-Dents (viewtopic.php?f=16&t=26244)

-Average Blur (viewtopic.php?f=16&t=22881)

-Wobble (viewtopic.php?f=16&t=26244)

Now we should be ready to start!

First open a new project :FileNew: and set it to the size you want.

Use the Paint bucket :PaintBucketTool: to paint the backgroud black. Open a new layer :AddNewLayer:

Now apply Clouds :Clouds: at difference. Do this about 4 times. Don't be afraid to do it more or less, this is a very flexible step and the amount of times you repeat it shouldn't effect the outcome.

Use Lasso Select :LassoTool: and choose about half of the layer so that you get a weave like selection. Cut :EditCut: out the top half.

Now use Dents with General: Scale 185, amount 90 and Detail: Detail 100, roughness 70.

Then use Curves :Curves: (RGB) to give color.

Use Average Blur with radius 3.

Then apply Motion Blur :MotionBlur: with an angle of about 90,00 and distance 200.

then use Sharpen :Sharpen: with amount 20. Do this 2 times.

Then use Glow :Glow: at default settings. Do this 2-3 times.

Now use Wobble with amount 0,60 and wobbles 14,00.

Then apply Dents with General: Scale 200, amount 20 and Detail: Detail 100, roughness 70.

duplicate :DuplicateLayer: the layer.

Now, on the top layer, use Gaussian Blur :GaussianBlur: with radius 150.

Then set the Layer Blend Mode :Properties: to Screen (If you prefer another blend mode use that).

Merge :MergeDown: the layers, and your done!

You can also add Soften Portrait :SoftenPortrait: to give a softer look.

That was that! Please comment and show your result. Just say if there's any problems or faults, like if you don't think there's room for more fire effects :wink:

This looks so real !!! Better than any "Fire" tuts that I've used.

Your instructions and pictures are very easy to follow.

Here's mine...

Great tutorial, I agree that it looks much more realistic than other fire tutorials and plugins.

---

The following plugins in your list are included with Paint.NET:

-Clouds

-Motion Blur

-Sharpen

-Glow

-Gaussian Blur

The only 3rd-party plugin that you didn't link to, Average Blur, can be downloaded here.

Try to make it a little more green and it would look like a couple of trees!

And Tramojo, REALLY cool effect!

I'm still kind of new to paint.net, so i probably

stink at painting from your point of view. If you tell me that I stink, you'll

be 10 seconds away from turning into a pile of meat. MOHAHAHAHA!!!im not crazy

Cool 8)

theres a easier way right??????

Yes, there is another fire tut out there, but it doesn't give the same effect. Personally I feel the other one looks less realistic, but if you absolutely don't have time and patience then pick that one :wink: And also, as Ouchy_S said, if you are going to use that one, and want something easy, you might as well use the plugin.

I have another method;

1. Render: Clouds: Scale:250 Roughness:0.

2. Duplicate layer. Blend mode: Negation

3. Add new layer.

4. Repeat steps 1 and 2. Set blend mode to Multiply.

5. Add new layer.

6. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

7. Blend mode: Normal, Opacity:145.

8. Flatten.

9. Curves.Like this:

10. Distort: Dents: Scale:110 Amount:50 Stretch: Amount:10 Angle:90.

Now you should have something like this:
