My ongoing quest to further my skills with the pyro shader and fluids in general. Found this sweet youtube campfire reference video and started hacking away.
Did everything in Houdini (fire, embers, and logs). Rendered with Mantra.
Flames in my fire go a little too high. Could also put more breakup where the fire separates from the logs, there are various other things that are really REALLY bothering me but overall I'm pretty happy with the result. I could spend another month just refining the results but gotta stop somewhere. On to the next project.
