I've baked a smoke simulation and now 'm trying to animate its location but even tough the domain is moving the smoke seems to stay exactly at same location. I've tried everything: parenting it, armature deform, limit/copy location it just doesn't seem to work. Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure you can move a baked simulation, in this case, you have to free the bake, move the domain, and then bake again $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I tried to animate it. I keyed the domain location, and it moves, as expected, with baked smoke in it. What am I doing wrong? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was able to move the baked smoke domain w/ smoke, I had to disable "Adaptive Domain" first. $\endgroup$

To move the smoke you don't have to move the domain. You have to move the "flow object"

I have done a simple and basic blender file with two cubes, one named domain and the other named flow. The flow object has two location keyframes at frame 0 and 90.

Hope this replies to your question

    $\begingroup$ What if I want to move the smoke? Not the "flow object". Literally move the entire domain around (local smoke)? $\endgroup$
