Candle flicker effect

Hi

Anybody how I could create a realistic candle flicker effect for a RGB par can

Not sure where to start

You will need to play with it to see the real world results but I would suggest two effects running.

Effect 1:
Colormix swing FX.
Add 2 or 3 colors. Usually something like Red, Orange and maybe a light orange.
Set the FX rate to be random
Increase the rate to something that looks quite fast.
You may wish to reduce the overlap a little.

Effect 2:
Is very similar but you will create an intensity swing FX.
Add some intensities. Perhaps 0%,70%,25%,100%
Set the FX rate to be random
Increase the rate to something that looks quite fast.
You may wish to reduce the overlap a little.
You may also want to play with the curves of each step.

As mentioned, you will need to play around with it quite a bit, but you should get something very close by using these two effects on top of each other.
