This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to render a fire effect on a transparent background for a PNG sequence (Cycles). I'd like to add it to a video in After Effects.
2 problems I'm experiencing:
- renders always on black background (Although I checked box 'Transparent' in 'Film' in Render Settings, and set to RGBA
- I got the fire effect to render (I had to switch to CPU for it to work), but it appears almost not visible, with dots around it. Do you know why it appears so dull and where the dots are coming from? (screenshots attached) I added a light in the scene to make the fire more visible although I don't even know if that's necessary for rendering fire..
Any advice and feedback would be appreciated. I'm kinda stuck here :)
PS: i'm a total Blender newbie
