Hi, I've just added 4 six foot candles to my display. Each candle has 16 nodes in the body and 4 nodes in the wick. A string length of 20 nodes is used for each candle. In nutcracker I have set up my models as 4 candle bodies and 4 wicks. This should allow me to run a continue flame effect on the wicks and vary the effects on the bodies. Below is my definition. CandleBody1 16 nodes Channels 1 to 48 Wick1 4 nodes Channels 49 to 60 CandleBody2 16 nodes Channels 61 to 108 Wick2 4 nodes Channels 109 to 120 CandleBody3 16 nodes Channels 121 to 168 Wick3 4 nodes Channels 169 to 180 CandleBody4 16 nodes Channels 181 to 228 Wick4 4 nodes Channels 229 to 240 The effect I am running on the wicks is flame effect with yellow white and red. The first candle wick works perfectly and only flickers using red, yellow and white. However all the other wicks are showing a pink and purple effect. I can not understand why when I have applied the same effect across all the wicks. Any suggestions?
