jstow222m - It will be animated, but i was just showing you an image of it and was wondering what people would think of it being a plugin, i am in the process of rendering each frame out, the fire ball is going to grow from nothing into the ball.

I will try and make a plugin out of it but i hav never made a plugin before

That looks like it would make a good animated background, like for a dvd menu or something like that. smile

Hmm, you could try and make it less of a perfect circle just to give it a more realistic quality.
Or leave it as it is and render out a version where it is just burning (not starting up or stopping) that way with a few bits and pieces added and a bit of brightening it could be used as a closeup of the Sun or something for space scenes.
