    yes you can use them, no i'm not making a png sequence

    If you see the animation frame by frame, there are like 2 or 3 frames with a weird straight line on the fire, I didn't know how to get rid of it.

    this is the tutorial:

    Hey Juan, thanks so much for making this! I don't use AE, but I'm sure it'll help a bunch of other people :D
    I think this would be better off in either resources or tutorials. Where would you rather it be?

    I like it, though (and this is more so due to the type of thing the tutorial is having you make than your own fault) it feels more like something you'd see on some kinda Sci-fi anime opening than an actual fire explosion they'd use for combat. Which is cool too, It almost reminds me of funimations new intro animation.

    I feel like a bit of a flair or Trap code shine would really help supplement that "Fiery" feel for it, maybe take it a step further and really pump up those particals with the depth coming closer to the camera to give it more 3D space-ish feel.

    Though that IS a really interesting way to do fire than just basic partical generation or using a fractal noise. I'll have to look into it further.
