SMOKE material settings

Post Sun Feb 26, 2017 12:51 pm


I am trying to render animation for the smoke modifier in Blender.

When doing this in Blender Cycles, the container is set to Emission with a DENSITY attribute.

In Yafaray, in the Properties for the container, I am setting the Volume to EXP DENSITY VOLUME and turning on MESHLIGHT but this doesn't appear to be working?

I can see that the smoke/fire is working in the non-rendered views, just not in the rendered view.

Any help please

Many thanks

It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure Yafaray has never supported smoke or fire.

You can use volumetrics to render fog and atmosphere, but not smoke and fire. ... olumetrics
