my workplace is having a Lord of the Rings theme for our christmas period (dont ask me, the management think its a great idea)

But for my team I want to do a picture of the one ring with the flaming/glowing text around the band...

The ring is no problem but I have no idea how to do the text, was thinking along the line of writing the text and the using boolean to remove it from the ring then apply a flaming texture to the text and copy back into the gap in the ring, then add some lights to make it glow....

anyone got anyideas or point me to a tut?

Thanks alot guys and girls in advance for any help

There once was a cool example of this on the caligari boards where someone had done exactly what you are trying to do, but I can't find it in the forum searches... a related link that I did find is http://forum.caligari.com/discus/messages/1584/11804.html? that shows the link to a font similar to what was used in the movie...

can't you use a bump map and glow map for the text?
