the resizing approach may not be practical for this effect - because while the image gets smaller, it also begins to tile
this effect is useful when you want to spin things , not shrink them.
The video approach is the best- but the 15 minutes of animation may be a deal breaker as rendering anything for 15 minutes from iclone can be challenging. This may be something you want to fake on a video editor, vs real time animation software. ie - render a candle stick and shrink it over time, then have a flame follow.
this is also one of the hardest things when starting with iclone, having an idea that's bigger than the software can handle hehe, been there!!
which btw, that said, a 3rd way to pull this off - is simply having a candle model, and shrinking it over time - but again, that 15 min goal is not easy.
I only render 10 second segments now to avoid instability. - you can certainly do more than that, but the larger the file, the more prone you are to instability, at 15 minutes - your next post might be "why can't I open my file ?" hehe
