Hello. I have live action footage of a flame. I want to use it in a cartoon but I need it to match the style of the short. I use Illustrator files and gradients. Does anyone know of filters/ color correction that I can use?

There are a variety of third-party plugins that can "cartoonize" video with varying degrees of success, and I think there are even tutorials on the topic here on the COW. Many of them were trying to replicate the look of Charles Schwab commercials.

If you simply use the search term cartoon in a search in this forum, I bet something turns up quickly.

Red Giant makes a very nice, although somewhat expensive plugin called Toon-It:

I own it, and can vouch for the quality of the presets. It's even possible to stack presets to come up with some very nice looking results, quickly. Of course it's also completely customizable.
