I have a smoke simulation in my scene, with 250 frames of data. If I want to render just a single frame (consistently), do I need to keep the data for the other frames?
E.g. If the 200th frame is the one I want, can I delete all the other smoke sim files and just leave “config_0200.uni” and “fluid_data_0200.vdb”? Will it render OK or do you need the preceding frames?
I’m just trying to reduce my file size, as uploading 200+ frames worth of smoke sim data to a render farm is quite slow for iterative changes.
