Get started with Flame Painter

Flame Painter is a standalone paint and particle effects package that enables you to quickly and easily create original paintings, light effects, unconventional designs or fantastic backgrounds. This software from Escape Motions expands on the possibilities of digital painting, providing you with a range of lifelike organic brushes that will help you to enhance your artworks.

As a go-to effects program for illustrating particles and – perhaps unsurprisingly – fire effects, Flame Painter has evolved over its 10 years. Initially, the program was limited to simulating cool-looking flame effects but version four introduces a raft of innovations such as new Particle Systems, procedural brushes with limitless customisation features, and expanded options for vector layers.
