This is the third assignment for ANM261 Introduction to Effects Animation, which I am taking as an 800 level course to strengthen my effects abilities for my thesis.
Instructor was pleased, but noticed some of the same issues I have with the assignment. Probably could have used fewer loops. Wind could have rolled through when it cuts across and changes the fire direction, some of the little doo-dads that flicker off don't flicker off quickly enough or become too frozen in air. Overall it was a success, and it was of course, a huge challenge.
