Flame Animation Maker

Hi Guys,

I’ve been putting some flicker into a DMP in Nuke and found this really cool and simple animation maker via Nukepedia.
Is there any equivalent in Flame? Expressions are great, but a real faff to set up when you only use them a few times a year. I’ve also had a look at crok_flicker, which is cool if you combine a few of them, but doesn’t seem to give the same level of control or ease of use, and S_Flicker isn’t always available.

What’s the best way to approach this? Pybox / Matchbox / something else?

I think the easiest way might be to create an action with this sort of thing. It looks a piece of piss. I’ll try and give you a call tomorrow.

Sorry, the example I showed was the most basic, but the tool allows a variety of noise and cycle types combined with ease functions - see image



A little OT but I found this a while back… it’s a good sandbox

Fuck. I wish we had had that to explain it at school.

When I need something analog-ish, Draw Motion Curve is my go-to:

Thanks Chris, that’s one I missed and will be using a lot :slight_smile:
