The system hangs), click back immediately at frame 0 on the Timebar (eventually) so that the system updates and returns to frame 0. We’ve turned off the Autobak feature so that 3ds Max doesn’t attempt to Autosave part way through the playback 13 14 FIRE sequence or once the sequence has been completed, else it will try to re-run the simulation and attempt another Autobak save at the end and so on and so on. . (depending on the time interval between saves you’ve set in your preferences). To get around the issue of disappearing particles (should you experience it), set a new Seed value in the Position Object operator and re-run the simulation.

This can be achieved by clamping off the curve by adding the extra point and setting it to a height of 0. 14 Select the Surface_Speed, Surface_Emitter, and Surface_ Target objects in the scene. Right-click in the Viewport and select Object Properties in the resulting menu. In the resulting panel, turn off Renderable and click OK to close the panel. Information: We don’t want to see these objects in the scene, so they’ve had their Renderable properties disabled. You could always hide the geometry, though we need to call them later on when assigning particle properties.

This is due to the amount of heat the “fire” emits, thus affecting turbulence in the air. Additionally, changing the size of the fire requires a change to the amount of fuel, which obviously changes the resulting shape of the fire (see the reference material for examples). For this you’ll need to amend the influence systems, plus potentially add additional systems to get the end result look right. One way to get the end result look a bit more effective would be to speed up its motion; obviously it’s currently way too slow and needs speeding up considerably.
