I am looking for some help with fire particles. I need the fire over and around the sun to stand out against the White Backgound (http://www.evapfaff.com/cgimages/sunWhite2.jpg) like it does against the Black background (http://www.evapfaff.com/cgimages/sunBlack.jpg) . I've used the fire effects surface emitter. I'm also using ambient light in front and behind the sun to blend the texture map with the fire. My background is a white polyplane with it's ambient color all the way up. I am still very much a young student of Maya and appreciate any and all suggestions.
