Flash 8 Tutorial: Fire effect

Filed under: My Flash Programs, Tutorials — betaruce @ 9:26 pm

I find that many people want to make a fire effect with the new filters in Flash 8.

I have written a tutorial about my way of creating this effect. My way is quite simple and the effect is realistic enough, altho it maybe a bit CPU intensive. Anyway I hope this can be a useful one :) .

Read the tutorial here.

Basically you can use the same principal and write it in AS 3. If people think it is good and the response is good, I will write one in AS 3 later.

  2. Hey betaruce.

    Awesome effect. And checked out your work, which is all awesome too. With your permission I’d like to try doing this in AS3 myself :)

  3. Sorry for the double post above, don’t know what happened. I got the verification screen, then pressed back to add a signature, and submitted again.

    I have tried doing it in AS3, and while I can say your method works, I cannot get a favourable effect.

    The things you need to change

    1) I don’t see the use of pushing 5 points into the array, when it could have easily been done with this since we only use 2 octaves.

    a = new Array(new Point(), new Point());

    2) _xscale and _yscale is now .scaleX and .scaleY
    furthermore, they don’t work in absolutely value, but in multipliers so instead of 300, you have to use 3.

    3) the scaleX and scaleY properties of the DisplacementMapFilter seems to have changed. I had to change the values from 3 to about 15 before I had any noticable effects.

    That should be about all that needs changing. The rest works fine!

    Thanks for the tutorial
