Make it Burn With Eevee

In this Blender video tutorial, we will simulate a burning effect on a 3D object. To achieve this we will create 3 different simulations within Blender.

Two of them are going to be dynamic paint simulations and one is going to be the fire.

Blender Simulations Made Easy

Simulations in Blneder can be pretty difficult to understand. But fear not! In this tutorial, you can follow step-by-step and understand exactly what the settings do. 

We will learn about the boolean modifier and how to take away from a mesh. If you are curious about dynamic paint, fire or rendering volumetrics in Eevee - this tutorial is for you! 

In this video we use an HDR from hdrihaven.com using this exact texture.
