What is wrong ?

I just don't get it !

What do you mean by applying the cloud effect a "bunch" of time ? I applied it 50 times and it still doesn't work...

Thanks for the tutorial by the way...

Create the difference clouds layer

1. Set the blending mode for the clouds layer to 'Negation'

2. Render clouds with the scale for the clouds at roughly twice the font size.

3. Repeat it a bunch to get a whispy look

thats important^^ if you do that it will work :wink:

It still doesn't work for me.

I did what you said. That's not the point, there's something else going wrong.

Is there any PDN so that I see what I missed ?

I don't understand why it doesn't work...

Retry (again) with the tables images from this topic. You must have a result at least in one case (box)...

I'm just a bit fed up to try it again and again and not getting the wanted effect... I just let it down... But thanks to all for the quick answers... Maybe I'll find it out sooner or later...

Just another try.

Take the first table from previous link (right-click on it / copy / paste in PDN)

Add a new layer.

On this layer run the clouds effect (250 - 70).

Press F4 and set the blend mode to negative.

Flatten the picture (Ctrl+Shift+F).

Go on with step 7:

Open up the Curves adjustment. Choose 'RGB' under 'Transfer map', then uncheck the 'Red' and 'Green' checkboxes so you're only modifying the blue channel, add a control point as shown below. Do the same for the green channel so you have the curves shown below.

That one worked. But it applies to all the picture. I tried to do the same with a text, but it didn't have the expected effect... Never mind... I found another tutorial which is more precise and simple here. Not exactly the same but it works at once.

Thanks a lot.

Not exactly as good as I hoped, but I´ll try again tomorrow to get the desired effect!

Good tutorial though! This is actually kinda logical, but you won´t know how to do it, ´till someone points it out!

Here's my effort:

FlameText.jpg

I am new (and I mean new!) to this so I've got a couple of questions:

1. How do I keep the background black as in the original post?

2. How do I make the text more flame-like. It's just really a bright glow.

3. I did this with three layers - background, text and cloud layer. Should I have done it with two layers - background and text on the same layer and then the cloud layer?

Finally, I followed the instructions as best as I could which took a couple of hours(!) because, being new to this, I'm not familiar with the program. But I haven't a clue what I was doing and could not see the logic because of my lack of knowledge.

I'm mainly trying to get into this to create unique backgrounds for titles, menu background etc for my video editing. Anyway, thanks for looking and any advice will be much appreciated. Glynn.

TheBiggFella,

1. I just went around with paintbrush set to black on size 100 and got rid of the extra fire manually.

2. Try changing the scale and roughness of the clouds. You could also try blurring the text more as well.

3. Yes, I only used two layers and it worked fine. Clouds on top and text underneath then merged together at the end.

Here's my go at it. No where near as good as barkbark00's on the first page but it'll do...

Here's one I made a while ago using slightly different techniques although I cannot recall them...
