Any ideas as to how i could make burning text?

RE: fire

Hmmm try using Panopactioum Filters...If not Create a set in Photoshop and map it onto your video in After effects or better still if you know Lightwave 3d ,...just create there veeeery easy to do..ok hope that helped

RE: fire

Or try the silly way i did it.  Make your title and color the face of your text blue-screen blue or green-screen green.  Build a big fire in your BBQ grill and tape it.  Put the fire on a lower level than the text so it will show thru.  Voila'  Burning text ala "ZULU"

RE: fire

nDanger has it right there. There's no substitute for real fire. Besides... just throw a couple of hot-dogs on the BBQ while it's rendering and reward yourself for a great comp. job!

RE: fire

I saw this in the Total Training Tapes...
Use a zig-zag cutout of red/yellow/orange (like pointy mountians).
Use the wave warp on it a little.  Then on a black solid, apply
the foam effect. Make the bubbles big and slow. Then blur the
heck out of it. Pre-comp this with the cutout. Then put it over top
your text. There is alot of fine tuning involved, but it works.

RE: fire

That sounds like a lot of work man.  Just fire up the old BBQ and get some natural textures and mask them or whatever.  There is no substitute-
Good Luck
