That’s so cool! Did you use curved meshes with a shader for that energy flowing in at the start? I’m trying to think of how you created that. Looks really awesome!

Hey Sheila! Thanks for the compliments! And you are right! I used a few different curved meshes I made in blender and a shader that scrolls the UVs. I actually used a cool free online app to make the textures called Flame Painter. You can find it here: https://www.escapemotions.com/experiments/flame/. Its a bit touchy but you can get some cool stuff lol. I just used the clipping tool to capture the image once I got something I liked.

If you’re interested, I can post my shader so you can take a look :slight_smile:
