Red Hot!!

Nice job of making the text appear to be glowing.

When I get down to the last step, and merge all the layers, my background isn't black anymore, it becomes the cloud layer. So, do you mean just merge the cloud layer and text layer, or all three like I've been doing?

Edit: Nevermind, I figured it out, sorry for the trouble.

Could we get the images back on this tutorial?

 

If not, Is anyone still around that can recreate this?  I used this tut in the past and loved it.  Now I am needing it again but cannot remember how to do it.  I tried going off of the written only but am coming to a block at the multiple text layers....

 

Plese help! Thanks!!!

This is my version of fiery text. The basic idea is to use Clouds, Dents, Red ochre's Furblur, and my Hot Metal Glow. It also uses BoltBait's Paste Alpha. The exact order and settings can be changed to get various effects.

 

For this example:

Create a new image.

Use Adjustments>Invert Color to make the background black.

Add a new (transparent) layer. Make sure it's the top layer.

Change the Primary Color to White by switching the Primary and Secondary Colors.

Type the text into the new layer.

Run Blurs>Furblur with the following settings changed from default:

   Repetitions: 30

   Main Length: 30

   Angle Variation: Main Angle Only, Curl Clockwise.

   Angle variation: Double S-Shape

Run Blurs>Motion Blur with the following settings:

   Angle: 60

   Distance: 5

Run Distort>Dents with the following settings:

   Scale: 12

   Refraction: 30

   Roughness: 14

   Tension: 5

   Quality: 3

Add a new Layer.

On the new layer, run Render>Clouds with the following setting:

   Scale: 46

Copy the text layer to the clipboard and make the layer invisible.

Make the Cloud layer the active layer.

Run Object>Paste Alpha with the following setting:

   Alpha source: Clipboard alpha

Run Color>Hot Metal Glow with the following settings:

   Incandescence Threshold Temperature: 150

   Red temperature: 880

   Yellow temperature: 1260

   White Temperature: 1400

   Red to Orange Shift: 0.544

 

EDIT: In place of Hot Metal Glow, you can use pyrochild's very flexible Adjustments>Gradient Mapping plugin with the Hot gradient.
