How do I create a candle flame.

Get help using Construct 2

Hello all,

Is there an 'easy' way to create a candle-flame effect? I've dug around but most flames seems closer to an explosion than a candle flame. Ideally, I would like a flame that flickers etc.

Is this possible?

Thanks so much.

Best way would probably be to create an animation, but there are other possibilities like shader-effects..

For example, in this topic is the flag shader, which with the right image might produce a nice-looking flame..

Thanks LittleStain. Unfortunately, the linked topic seems pretty complex. How would I do simple animation in C2? How did you do the candle in your post?

Thanks!
