I have a Photograph where I want to edit in some rendered storm clouds and therefore downloaded Blender and started to have a look into it. I'm following this tutorial to build a cloud with Cycles.
My computer isn't really fast with graphics and if I try to bake with 300 divisions and 5 high res divisions, Blender crashes.
I was able to figure out that a bake at 250 devisions and 5 high res devisions works, however it will take about a day. I only need a still render.
To reduce the baking time, I set the scene duration to a total of 15 frames, adjusted the baking frame span from 1 to 15, and I put in a temperature difference in the smoke domain settings at 0.2 because I want the smoke rise a bit to give it some texture. The still I want to render is at about frame 7.
I tried to set in the frame settings for baking 6 to 8 however then frame 7 looks like the smoke was just emitted at this frame only and not the first one.
Is it possible to bake a single frame?
