2 tips I know of. One is that candle light has a high fall off, so a light, perhaps a point light...with falloff/decay set to quadratic can be a good start for the actual light.

The second is using volume lights to create the sss effect near the top of the candle wax. If you adjust the intensity curves of the light you can create different gradations of fall off from that 'light' too.

Also, using geometry for the candle flame, with ramp textures, can help simulate the varying colours and intensities throughout the flame...

I also have a candle lights in my scene, so this would be a helpful thread.

How did you make the candle light Dushyant? I've found very few tutorials on them, and all of them doesn't seem to give me the effect that I want. I *may* render just one picture, but I also may just do some sort of camera movement, so anything with sprites or 2D images will not look good.

Any tips?

does this help??

I saw that, but like I said, I rather see it move, jiggle, like a real candle light. That involves Fluid dynamics. Ive seen a lot of fire tutorials, but not a single flame tutorial.

If I was just making one picture render, then I would do that tutorial. Since I'm not...

However, if time is restricted and I cannot get it to work or I feel like user added image, then I will go ahead and use that tutorial.

Thanks though!!
