Before you start you might want to check Axeman's flame tutorial out. http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22271 . It will make it easier to understand this tutorial.
You'll be able to make something like this:
Okay lets start
Get Axeman's 5 textures from his tutorial:
http://fxhome.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22271 (I hope it's okay that i use them for the tutorial it looks best with those)
Start up EffectsLab or VisionLab (I will be using ELab DV
Create a new Particle Effect and move it to the top left corner. Set it to 70-100 frames.
Use these particle settings:
RealFlame_01, RealFlame_02, RealFlame_10, RealFlame_11, Sparks_02, Smoke_ball1
NOTE: All of these except the black are at the highest brightness.
Just make it look as you want.
Copy the 'Particle Effect' and paste it.
In your new effect, delete all the textures and load some new ones like this:
Default,RealFlame_01, RealFlame_02, RealFlame_10, RealFlame_11, Smoke_ball1, Sparks_02.
Set the composite mode to Add.
And you're done
Please say if i'm missing anything.
