I’m currently doing a smoke sim for an explosion. Final animation is in HD, otherwise I’d be done by now! :spin: I have the domain res at 64, and the high res divisions at 5, and it STILL looks a bit too blurry.
Now normally I’d just bump it up to 7 without a second thought… well one problem. At 5 divisions, the cache takes up 80 GIGABYTES!!! YIKES!! But I DO have the compression set to “light”.
My question is, just HOW effective IS the heavy compression? Time isn’t really an issue here.
Also, I assume light vs. heavy wouldn’t change the results themselves, just how they’re stored… right? “Heavy” compression isn’t going to degrade the quality is it?
