My name is AJ and I am a content creator on YouTube. I have been making videos with Shotcut for about a year now. You can check out my latest uploads here: https://youtube.com/c/AvenueNights
My next upload is for The Corporate Ministry. I had this idea of taking the Undertaker’s symbol and have it burning on an endless loop while the music plays in the background. An example of what I am trying to reproduce can be seen here: https://youtu.be/IoRRwVw3dq8?t=240
Any help, ideas, or suggestions are appreciated. A link/plug to your channel or site will be included in the video description with the final upload - if you wish to do so.
Did you have a look at some of the blender fire simulation tutorials on youtube ?
It’s difficult to seamlessly loop simulations like fire, because of the randomness. You can sort of fake it by doing a blend transition, which I did below. You can see it flare up in the transition frames. It’s “passable” but far from perfect
The intro starts with the “unlit” logo frame. The unlit frame is just 1 frame but you can hold it or duplicate it as long as you want. The intro is basically the unlit logo, to starting the fire transition
The loop video is prepared in a way that the blend transition is part of it. So you can place it end to end as many times as you want on the timeline. Or you can use another tool like ffmpeg to loop it “n” times if you want a large video.
Try Blender.org, anther FREE program. You have to be careful of the big green Download signs that transfers you to a paid video site. Instead go to the top and in small caps press the download. The latest version is 2.82.
Hope everyone is doing well during these times of uncertainty. Just wanted to update the thread with the final video. Thanks to @sauron@pdr@Johnny_Debt and @Peter_Dore for your suggestions. Stay safe and stay home.
