I tried a new approach to get a flickering light with a candle.

I took a Picture layer with a flare picture with the flare.cfx effect and a Size of 4,4,1 and a high Transparency setting (0,9646) and a FX Flicker period of 0,202.

What do you think? Is it a good solution?

I think it looks perfect. Congratulations!

My only comment is about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Your YouTube post uses the title "Flickering candle" and the description "Made with BlufTitler". This is not going to generate a lot of hits. Not for your YouTube video and not for BluffTitler.

Here's a version optimized for SEO:


How to render a realistic 3D flickering burning candle


In this video I have used BluffTitler to render a 3D candle for my Christmas video.

For more info visit my article in the BluffTitler community:

This version will generate a lot more hits because it contains more words that users enter when searching for such an effect. It also has a link to the BluffTitler site. This helps increasing the number of visitors and also helps placing BluffTitler higher in the search results.

Sorry for this boring comment, but I hope you agree this is only a tiny bit of extra work. If everybody in this community is a bit more SEO-wise it will make a *HUGE* difference. It will certainly help us speeding up the development of all your wonderful feature requests!

Looks very good Filip! Michiel, i'll try to think more to make reference to BluffTitler in YouTube video description, BluffTitler merit.
But i never understood how search option works in YouTube, is it title, description or tags which are important ?:!

Michiel: Done! Not boring! I gladly help to make BluffTitler great! It's an amazing piece of software.
I find every time more creative solutions for the challenges I set for myself.


Thnx Vincent. There are more solutions for one challenge!

Dankjewel Filip!

Vincent, only YouTube knows. My guess is that the title is the most important.
