This tutrial is written by me using PSP 10 and Animation Shop 3

My supplies Here

I'm using PTU artwork by © Amberly Berendson,

Plugins used
Mura Meister - Cloud
Flaming Pear - Glare
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient glow
Eye Candy 4000 - Fire (the effect is included in the supplies

Let's start!!

Open my Vaybs tut supplies, I've included the flame layers, open one of them.
Open the ring tube, place it where you like, zoom in and use the
Eraser tool to delete parts of it so it looks like it's on the horn.

To add the smokey background, use the magic wand to select the area
inside the big circle, Selections - Modify - Expand by 6
add 3 new raster layers above the white background and add Mura Meister

Cloud with these settings (orange #ffa942, grey #404040)

Just change Contrast to -19 and -36 on the other 2 layers (or just play
around to your liking) Close 2 of the layers so just one is ready for

Add your tube of choise, give it a drop shadow (7,9,100,5)
I've also given mine a glare using Flaming Pear at these settings

For my name I've used the font Firecat, using the flame pattern included
as backgroundcolor and a dark red from the circle as foreground
stroke width 2. Also gave it a subtle gradient glow using Eye Candy 5

Remember the proper © info

Ready to animate?

Copy merged, paste as new animation in Ani Shop 3
Back in psp, close the smokey background and the flames
you've used and open the next ones, copy merged and paste after
current in Ani Shop 3. do the same to the 3rd layers.

Select all in ani shop and change frame properties to 18.
view animations and save as...
(Edited Aug 2010, If you're using a transparent background like mine,
click Customize. I've used Optimized Octree, and under
Partial Transparency I used 60, and Yes, blend with this color "white")

And you're done!!

Thanks for trying it out, and hope you've had fun!!
I'd love to see what you've made of this.
