car on fire


Recommended Posts


I know there r a lot of fire tuts but this is little different

So we'll start with this


and we'll end up with this


First open the image of an object u want to put on fire

Then open new layer and set the blending mode to screen


Use the paint bucket and make the layer black

Change the primary colour to white and with the brush tool (size 15) draw some random lines like this


Then duplicate the black layer and aply a motion blur (effects - blur - motion blur)

-angle 135

-distance 80

and uncheck the "centered" (optional)


Go to the second black layer and repeat motion blur


then merge the 2 black layers


Now aply dents (effect - distort - dents)

- scale 80

- amount 80


Then go to adjustments -curves and aply the changes like in the image below


after this, unckeck the black layer so u have now the backround image


With the lasso tool select the car (dsnt have to be perfect), something like this


Go to effects - distort - displacement

X - 10

Y - 10


Then deselect the car, check the black layer back and flatten the image


Thats it. Looks real, right?

are those GIF or maybe Bitmap images? that may be why the quality is so terrible.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Thank you! I dont know which one but i will definitely try something else. This is unbelievable, i keep trying to realize what happened.

I cannot even fix anything because i changed my computer with an imac and as everybody knows Paint.net dsnt work on mac (which is so hurting because im in love with Paint). But because im in no mood whatsoever to try anything else i think ill install windows too on this mac so ill be able to use it again, i so miss it.
