Ken was talking about the matches on fire in a book of matches.
It is all halo I believe and isn't exactly a "flame" such as that of a candle.
It isn't very easy to get a good looking candle flame, I know because I've 
tried. If you need to see it, I'll send it your way if I can locate it.
Perhaps the most unavoidable problem with them is the background, any changes 
make the flame appear very different.
