When I bake smoke inside of a domain, with everything set up, there appears to be many problems. First, when I head back to the first frame, the animation does not restart. It’s like theres no rewind, only stop and go. Also, the smoke is a ghost in the 3d view port. You can see any object behind it. However, I setup a material on the emitter, added the voxel texture, set the density to 0, but yet nothing renders. I am using the original build of blender 2.5 alpha 2.
You ought to set up the material on the domain. And watch ma’ tuts
I have the same problem (with the rendering), It doesn’t show up unless the cameras inside the domain! To keep the animation from continuing, you have to bake it first(don’t know why).
