That crossed my mind, the main objection to it is that there is
apparent motion and there are color changes in the flame that make
it appear realistic. No way a single lamp will ever look like a
candle. I have 3 outputs but used more like 7 or 8 LEDs and a
theatrical color filter.
Of course you could videotape a real flame and then try to analyze
that. Frank seems to have the equipment to do that- I'm still missing
a Firewire port to get the info into my computer.
