View Full Version : help: fire lighting simulation

11 November 2010, 03:51 AM

in my scene i have a barrel. i would like to light a fire in it. like one that a hobo would use to keep warm. i don't need any fire showing, per say. just a soft glow being emitted from inside the barrel. any suggestions or tutorials would be very much appreciated.

Many ways to accomplish this - depends on the effect you are after.
A couple of examples below where one is using a sphere with luminous materials (luminous color can be varied by noise function) and GI. The other uses a spot light with volumetrics, where the volumetric density is modified by a noise function.
