    I just have the experience that making the "cartoon fire" effect.I have no good idea to do the real one.

    On the morning,I have tried to use Premiere to export a animated gif from fire.AVI,but I lost.Because the gif is too large.And this flash is applied to the webpage.

    You could tell your client their SOL,
    that fire doesnt work, the file size
    is to large and would hinder the overall
    effect of their otherwise awesome site..

    only joking,

    typing fire + photoshop in Google.com brings up countless tuts.

    You should be able to modify one of those
    for your needs.

    Thank you for your help!

    but the effect is not very good!

    And there is another problem that wiping off the black background.

    so maybe I will try to do it again!

    Thank you very much!

    I also believe my client is a stupid man.His thought is very very cute.Being a designer ,I have no chance.You know,"client is god".

    At last,if I can't do the fire problem very well.I will give up this flash effect,and try to persuade my "cute" client.

    WRONG
    You are the designer and you have to pursuade the client to make wise decisions. You are the profesional and it is your expertice. It's like if you were going to the dentist. The dentist would be the designer (you) and you would be the patient (client). Now, do you tell the dentist what you want done and how you want it done? No, because it is not your job nor your expertice. Your client doesnt sound like anyone who knows a lot about design. If it does not fit, explain that to them, otherwise, work and use the best solutions possible.
    It must be obvious day at camp stupid

    Yes£¬I need your help indeed£¡

    Now I found a better fire.fla .But
    its background is black.Would you help to wipe the black background?
    for example,every picture is made to a transparent PNG file.

    thank you again!

    how to wipe off?

    In photoshop:

    Firstly,I use the Ctrl+I to make the fire picture inverted.

    Secondly,there is a filter named "Elimate White" which made by the third software company.You can download it on internet.It is able to make the picture which bg is black to change the picture which bg is transparent.

    thirdly,Ctrl+I and Ctrl+U\Ctrl+M.

    Now,the beatiful fire is be wiped off.I believe it is a simple method.Don't use channel
