Houdini Snippet Vol.13 – Burning Paper


The main goal of this test was to ignite a fuel-field(paper) from a temperature emitting object(candle). I managed this with embedded fields. So i did this little paper-burn scenario, with a desintegration effect on top. Im still testing to achieve better, more realistic flames.

For the desintegration effect i created two levels of clusters, which are released from the transfered heat field. The approach was to get a cool looking effect, not a realistic one.

Rendering with Redshift and some Glow and CC in Fusion.
