I'm doing an animation on a 2D plane. I have some 3D objects on it. Now I would like to show some fire. I know I can follow some smoke and fire tutorials and add this. But rendering takes very long.
Is there a way I can add 'simulated' fire/flames that doesn't need to bake and render so much? I was thinking of trying to search an animated gif of fire and try to render this (never done this) but I have no idea if this would be the way to go.
