  1. How bad are fire salt packets that I can get at Walmart? Are use them in the fireplace with a door before. Seemed fine gorgeous. I was thinking about doing a short film and burning lots of them. Even if I ventilate it well is there any real danger in an outdoor fire pit? Or in a large fire place? It’s all just going straight up the chimney isn’t it? Thanks! Love the videos!

  2. No the lithium is potassium i know because i did this in my chemistry class last week and the chemical compound (K) makes that bright red color, not lithium.

  3. Digital cameras actually show infrared light a lot. That is why all the colors look the same. It's seeing the heat of the flame and showing it as red. (You can test your infrared remotes by looking at them through a digital camera.)
