I have a question here. when talking about dynamics & special effects, I'm a total noob. I have seen free tut about ring of fire, but I'm still too dumb to make "flaming eye". You know, the kind in LOTR? Well, actually, my goal isn't to make that kick ass effect (well, I would like, but I'm too stupid for that at the moment ), I would just like to know how could I make a fire in a specific shape? I made a verry simple eye-like shape with polygons, and now I would like to somehow apply fire effect to that shape. Can anyone help me here? Tnx.
well i'm a newbie also but you can try doing what ragecgi said and at the same time try animating a texture of fire that you apply to the eye. i dunno know if this will help but it doesn't hurt to try because learning to animate textures might come in handy.
