It seems that with the smoke sim, most people are seeing it fine in the 3d viewport, but are having problems rendering it. I’m having the opposite problem. I seem to be able to render the smoke just fine, but I can’t see it in the 3d viewport - only the particles appear. I’m running the same build on both my laptop and my desktop, and my laptop shows the smoke in the 3d viewport no problem, but my desktop (the comp i use to render cause my laptop sucks) doesn’t show the smoke. I have now tried no less than 4 different builds of blender hoping it might have been a glitch with the build, but keep having the same problem…HELP!
Please do so anyway. Sometimes it’s a subtle change in the process that makes all the difference. Alternatively, we may find that it’s more of a hardware problem than anything else. Without seeing the file, it’s certainly more difficult to be sure.
