Do you need to make 2D fire at some point? We did, in our last project, and we tried different techniques to match the art direction.

Avatar image for is the blog of the technical department of the French studio Les Fées Spéciales. Established in 2015, based in Montpellier (in the south of France), the studio creates animated images, CG and digital 2D animation for feature films, shorts, museums or other companies. The studio relies on social innovation, through the use of a cooperative structure, and technical innovation, using and participating on free software solutions as much as we can. Willing not only to be free-software enjoyers, we have decided to talk about it, share our tools (as imperfect but as useful as they may be), and explain experiences and methods.
