I've been trying to send a person my .blend file with an external cache folder (.bphys format) to render a fire for me, and when he opens it, he can't connect the two. Any solutions?

Set blender to use relative paths.

Copy the folder with the cache on the same folder as the blend file.

Pack all the images used as textures.

Zip the folder with all those files into a single compressed file.

Send the zip file.

  • $\begingroup$ It is important that the cache folder is in a subfolder. No need to rename it, $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Sitting or standing or laying. As long as they are together nice and cozy. $\endgroup$
