Flame Thower test
Last week Blender Guru put up a tutorial for making a flame thower.
It a nice little tutorial and can be done very quickly. However, due to the caculation needed for an animation it can take some time to do.
Here is a single frame from my frist test.
As you can see from this that the qulity is very bad, but this was a test after all. The biggest problem was that the was light reflecting from the flame.
I made the corrections and then waiting five mins to re-bake the smoke and flames. Once done I rendered it out as an animation.
This was the real killer. As it took over six hours with the setting, set low for the test.
So if a short animation like this took over six hours to render, I hate to see what one with the setting set to high res.
I will find out soon, as this tutorial has given me an idea for a pic and possiably an animation.
