If you smash two pieces of wood together long enough, they might start burning. Or you could go to a store and get a lighter or matches.

You can agitate the molecules of whatever you need to burst into flames by concentrating and staring at a certain point of the object that you need to combust.

NOTE.
This is called heat vision and you may very well have a very violent and deadly allergic reaction to kryptonite.

p.s.
Kneel before Zodd!

Or you can call Captain Planet and the Planeteers... one of those kids has a ring that can manifest flames.

That's easy. Just talk to ben3308 about CGI (jk ben)
On a serious note you are talking computer generated flame right. Download the FXhome demos. There are presets for fire you can use there.

Most often, Fire is best handled by stock footage, not by digital effects.

There are a few flame presets, but i prefer to use the default "Inferno" preset. You have to mess around with the attributes a little to get it to look realistic, but it is a pretty good effect.
