Easy Muzzle Flash
show user profile  Dawe91
Hey!

I want to create a muzzle flash for my gun, but i don't know how. It does not have to bee awesome and I don't want to do it with bitmaps and stuff. I want it to be pretty easy... Maybe there is a tweak for glow? :D

I hope somebody can help me.

Is this for an animation or still? (or game model)

just use an omni light to simulate the light from the fire
a simple primative with a gradient texture in the opacity channel will get you someway to creating fire if you are too lazy to put any effort in.
