Speeding Flames Text

Make this speeding burning text effect:

Step 1

Create a blank document, size depends on the size of your text.

Black background. White foreground.

Type your text. The font I used is the standard font Lithus pro. I made it bold and italic.

Step 2

Duplicate your text layer and activate the copied layer. Place it under your original text layer

Use Filter --> Stylize --> Wind (from the left) a few times and then apply Filter --> Bur --> Motion Blur with these settings:

Set this layer's opacity to about 85 percent.

Step 3

Merge down the text layers (Hit CTRL-E while having the top layer selected).

Activate the transform tool (CTRL-T), right click the text and choose warp.

Warp it to something like this:

Step 4

The last steps to add the fire color:

Go to Image --> Mode --> Grayscale

then Image -->Mode --> Indexed Colors

and finally Image -->Mode --> Color Table and choose Black Body


..there you go.. your speeding flaming burning text effect:
