Yes, I used a two-transform blank flame and just put in my own tweaks and the variables which form a "plastic" image. :-)

Yes, it's the gamma, brightness and the transform weighting which brings out the detail and strength of colour.. oh and also the amount of colour saturation, which I also tweak in post-work. :-)

Just the usual slow process of playing around with a lot of different possibilities with the variation fractions, transform colours, weighting and transform rotation and placement on the editor grid. :-)

Wow Steve you really have captured some essence with this one. It is super fantastic. The coloring and the flame just seem to be made for each other. This is one premo example of the pure beauty of plastic flames.
