How Do I Make This Effect?
Hey Guy,

Semi-noobish here... I know my way around Gimp, but getting into some more advanced stuff.

I want to find out how to make the wispy light things like in this image.

I am assuming it has to do with paths, and possibly light render and blur, but for the life of me cannot reproduce the effect. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

RE: How Do I Make This Effect?
I would start off with looking at rendering a flame. Always a bit hit-&-miss but if you go into the flame edit and cycle through the variations you eventually get something you like.

Filters -> Render -> Nature -> Flame

Not trying to duplicate your example, a quick render before I pack in for the night.

I am sure someone with better ideas will be along soon.

I am thinking of this specific thread that would come close to your effect (will update if/when I find it) using motion blur & zoom on a logo for a light affect.

Try also combining these two techniques:

wispy clouds (add a blur & change the layer mode)
