use veiwport smoke in render

hello everyone,

thanks for reading. so i am making a animation where everything is more of a cartoon, and i like how the smoke looks in the viewport, but not how it looks in the render. so i was wondering what settings do i use to make the rendered smoke have the same appearance as the viewport smoke? i am using Blender Render as the render engine and blender 2.74.

any help is appreciated,


  1. render with OpenGL (found in Info Editor > Render menu)
  2. composite in post
