I need to create a cool looking candle flame animation that will be used in Flash. Aside from flash, I have AfterEffects and 3DS Max at my disposal. I just dont know how to make the animation itself.
I've been searching the web for a while and all I can find are awful vector looking Flash animations. Looking to make something that looks somewhat realistic.
you will need particular... but if you can get your hands on particle illusion do it
Either that or animate a mask using the pen tool in AE.
how about actually doing it yourself, all you need is a candle, lighter and video recorder ?
Particular plugin will do it with the presets. Look for the flame ones, and play with the settings as desired.

- Let me check and see if Particular has a preset like that.CygnusZero4
- your thunder is just too good not to steal, calles ;)harlequino
- i was playing!CALLES
- Im looking at the particular presets right now. Only thing in the drop down is an option called NONE. That was helpful.CygnusZero4
have you tried creativecow.net?
flashden - got some pretty good examples there

Uh, do you have a legit copy? Either way, you either have a bum version or your AE copy isn't up to snuff.
Look around for Particualr tutorials, and you can create from scratch.
May just want to purchase a (pre-keyed) stock clip for the sake of time.
I take it you´ve already looked into stock video and there´s no clip that fits the specs of this particular project?
can't you just video a flame from a candle? Obsurd I know!
you could use the cc particle thinger instead of particular
