What You Will Learn

You will learn to use the toggle, slow-motion, loops and cycles recipes to create the illusion of a candle flame flickering and going out. 

Why Is This Important?

This special effect is subtle and quiet. Three frames of a toggle is less energetic than two (remember the fire in the toggle recipe? Raging!). Mixing a random order of the three flames gives this flame a dancing quality. Repeat by copying the cycle as long as you prefer. When the smoke drifts upwards, extreme caution is required to make the smoke drift up smoothly with micro-spacing.
