How could I control shape of fire to achieve a matches flame?

Recommended Posts

Hi;

I tried to achieve a smooth shape and calm fire as a matches flame, but as you can see in image bellow my fire is in a crazy shape..!

How could I control shape of fire to make it smooth?

 

Any comments will be appreciated.

Thanks.

as a start turn off any disturbance, turbulence, shredding, sharpening, confinement, play with Temperature diffusion, maybe add a gasblur if you are still unhappy

use that as a base and shape the sim from there

This is a great tutorial for candle flame. It's not in English, but easy enough to follow along. If I remember correctly the "Timescale" setting of your pyro sim is one of the most important parameters for getting away from that campfire look.

Honestly, it doesn't make much sense to use pyro for a simple candle flame. Just make the shape procedurally out of polygons or whatever, use procedural noise / bending / etc to wobble the shape, then render it as a volume. You can always do a secondary pyro sim for smoke if you need smoke. It'll be a bazillion times faster to iterate on this way.
