Adding New Flames to JWildfire

Time Needed : 10 minutes

Confused as to where to store your flames, or want JWildfire to load flames from a specific folder? Time to get organised.

  1. Step 1

    Make a folder to keep your flames in. Note the entire path. (In Windows 10, you can right-click on the path and select “Copy address as text”, and later use Ctrl-V to paste it.)

  2. Step 2

    In JWF, click Settings. In the Settings dropdown menu, then click Preferences.

    open settings

  3. Step 3

    The Preferences screen comes up. Scroll down to tinaFlamePath and double click on the blank space where the path is put in. Then type in the path to your flames folder (or with the Windows 10 shortcut above, type Ctrl-V and it will add the path). At the bottom, click Save and Close.

    The preview of the flame appears in the JWF main window and in the thumbnail row at the left. Now you can play around with the flame.


  7. Step 7

    To make JWildfire automatically save your flame when you render it:

    Go into Preferences and scroll down to tinaSaveFlamesWhenImageIsSaved.
    Double click on the box to check mark it.
    Click Save and Close.

    JWildfire will save the flame to the same folder as the rendered image.
