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

Perhaps the most unavoidable problem with them is the background, any changes
make the flame appear very different.
