Hi Techdoku,

Thanks for posting your Jazz stove VR animation.  I like how you captured the flame on a plane to quickly communicate "stove".  While twisting it, though, I was thinking: "it's too bad there isn't a way to somehow animate the flame as you rotate it, to give it a little more life".  Then I thought: "I wonder if you could do it through "lenticular" FX, like they'll do on DVD jackets, childrens books, or even collectible drinking cups".  Maybe a 2 or 3 image lenticular flame that would 'flicker' as you rotate?

hi br33ttj,

thank you for your comment.
this is exactly the thing I was thinking of, but I do not know how to realise it in ks!
we will do vr`s with all of our stoves and an lenticular FX on the flames would be amazing.

has anyone an idea, how to do that?

If this works, it'll be awesome for sure :)

PS: I attached a quick test I did.  You have the ksp for it and in the rar file are the same ksp + a psd for the texture.

This is fun :D

Obviously, tesselation quality on the imported lens is critical for this type of stuff.
Perhaps you'll want to import your stove with normal tesselation quality.  Then in a different file import the lens with high quality, then merge the 2.

wow!

this is a great base to work with. the idea is absolutly right.
i tried it with the fire but i cant get the stripes cutting through in ps like you did with the "key" and shot".

i am also not sure if it will look realistic with when the bump in the fire (lenticular_lens)

maybe i am a little bit overstrained  :o
