When I use quick smoke to create a smoke simulation everything works fine,

but when I create a box and make it a domain, the smoke simulation is not visible in the render due to visible domain?

What's causing this?

    $\begingroup$ Please make your question clearer. Please show the settings for the manual domain. A domain can remain a box before the simulation starts. $\endgroup$ – atomicbezierslinger Jul 27 '18 at 7:14

  • $\begingroup$ Only one domain in the scene at a time, domain settings default... when I make a box a domain manually it just doesn't show the smoke in the render $\endgroup$ – Mateusz Sowiński Jul 27 '18 at 7:22

    $\begingroup$ You have not yet shown your settings. Screen Capture. You might even have an extra box. Did you Bake? $\endgroup$ – atomicbezierslinger Jul 27 '18 at 7:24

    $\begingroup$ What material have you assigned to the domain? Is it a volumetric or just a surface shader? The Quick Smoke does more than just create the domain - it also assigns a volumetric material to it. $\endgroup$ – Rich Sedman Jul 27 '18 at 8:01

That's because the default material for the domain is still enabled enter image description here so you see on that image that it doesn't workenter image description here so you have to make a random image and apply quick smoke on it and then delete it and then select the domain again and choose the smoke domain material enter image description here and then it works.enter image description here
