well if you want I'll tell you the technique i used for the fire at the end of perish. it's extremely cpu intensive though, so other than that i would recommend frame by frame. or some shapetweening fun.

okay, first you have to make a circle with a radient gradient: from yellow to yellow with zero alpha. make this a symbol, get sure that the circle is exactly in the middle of the clip.



then make a movieclip with 4-6 layers and put one circle on each layer. transform the circles and drag them around so that it looks like a flame.



make a motion tween of about 10 frames on each layer.

the first frame of the movieclip should look like this: the circle on the bottom of the flame should have alpha 0%, the others about alpha 80%.

on the last frame of the motion tween you stretch the circle at the top of the flame and set alpha to 0%. take a look at the pic below: the last frame of circle 1 should look like the first frame of circle 2, etc. ...



to get a loop make keyframes out of the last frames before the keyframes and clear the last keyframe out. errrr... yes:




ummm... anymore questions? actually I find it's harder to explain than to create.

and proud of it.

btw, i forgot: once you got the flame done, you can put 2 flame movieclips on each other and give one of them an orange tint effect.

well you can do that on FlashMX.
It's works almost the same.
Just with another interface.
I'm to lazy to get used to this another interface.
...
actually I'm just to lazy to get myself MX and install it.
