Disclaimer : I started learning blender 3 days back.

I am trying to replicate a tutorial of creating smoke in blender, but I don't get any effect even after following the steps.

  1. In the default sphere, I add Quick Object -> Quick Smoke. When I play a simulation, nothing happens whereas in many videos I saw just after adding the smoke box(if that's what it's called), they can see the box turning into smoke.

Version: 2.8 Attached Snaps of settings.

The basic stuff


Physics again

Is your outer "smoke box" being used as domain and is "adaptive domain" checked? Make sure the smoke has room to move.
