I'm having problems with the new smoke and fire features for 2.71. I have followed Jonathon Lampels tutorial but it quit working at the part where you put in the attribute node with an attribute of "density". Any idea why it's not working? I also tried the "fire" attribute as well, with no luck.

Here is without connecting the attribute node.

and here it is with it connected.

Thanks in advance!

    $\begingroup$ fire isn't valid, it's flame. Not sure why density isn't working though.. Could you upload your .blend? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 8 '14 at 22:38
  • $\begingroup$ yea, flame isn't working for me either. How do I upload a blend file? $\endgroup$ – Adam Masters Jul 8 '14 at 23:08
  • $\begingroup$ Upload it to pasteall or whatever host you like and paste the link here. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 8 '14 at 23:10

    $\begingroup$ Make sure you're using CPU as your render device $\endgroup$ – cegaton Jul 9 '14 at 0:07

Make sure your smoke has been simulated a bit before you render it.

You can quickly simulate it by playing the animation (AltA), or you can cache it more permanently by baking it (press Bake in Properties > Physics > domain settings > Smoke Cache).

Once you have done that, you should be able to see the smoke in the viewport and the render.
