Something Wrong with the System

A Flash/Actionscript blog


FIRE!  ImageRecently I had some time to goof off at work and I wanted something quick and dirty to play with. So I tried to generate a flame using Perlin noise.

Now I know a ton of people have already done this kind of stuff.  But I wanted to give it a shot myself.  I don’t think my attempt is half bad either.

Really this is just a Perlin noise field in a bitmap being scrolled and blurred on 3 layers.  Sorta simple… kind of 😀
