Ok, contrary to what you probably thought when you clicked this, this isn’t about the new particle deflection. Here is an image of two burning astroids I need for a project.
Notice the bottom one doesn’t have the flame. The flame is there, but it is actually being covered by the smoke. The problem is, even if I bring the flame way closer to the camera, where it would obviously be in front, the smoke still covers it. The even weirder thing is that the bottom one is a duplicate of the top one. I just Shift-D’d and moved it down. Anyone have an explanation?
