Burning Mandala

Submitted by NexusBlizzard
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was toying around, trying to make a new fire SFX and then I got hit by nostalgia and inspiration (I'll let you guess where I got the idea) ^^
It can be used as a missile, buff or even a doodad.
The 8 flames form a circle that periodically merges with the middle orb while also rotating erratically. I would've liked to make a more spectacular death effect but it already uses 10 particle emitters.
Give credit if you use it in any way.
Hope you like it!

Update: here's the GIF

    If somebody could tell me a program that captures the screen into a GIF I could upload the animation (I couldn't find one that recorded properly).

    I don't know how, all I know is that it's a tedious process. If you could do it, though, it would make what the model does a whole lot clearer. It's nigh impossible to capture with a single picture.

    Exellent model! I'm planning to do a Sailor Moon map and this effect will be very useful for Sailor Mars "Burning Mandala" spell =) I hope you will make more.

    gj on this one. By any chance, could this model work as a burning tire?
