I have this project of a large scale environment, and have the main character in front, and he's supposed to be holding a torch. I made the fire smoke domain, and got it baked. But it's at the world origin and I'm trying to move it to the torch.

When I try, it just jumps back to the origin. and I tried freeing the bake cache and then I could move it. but when I baked it again, it put it back at the world origin. How do I fix this?

  • $\begingroup$ Is it able to be moved if parented to an empty and then moving the empty? $\endgroup$ Dec 24, 2021 at 12:05
  • $\begingroup$ It sounds like you have accidentally added a location keyframe at the origin, possibly at frame 0, to your smoke domain. Is this the case? $\endgroup$ Dec 24, 2021 at 16:13
  • $\begingroup$ It might be helpful if you created a blend file for just the fire that reproduces the problem. If you added that blend file to your question, we might be able to figure out what is going on. (How to add a blend file) $\endgroup$ Dec 24, 2021 at 16:18
  • $\begingroup$ I'm attempting to upload the file right now, and I did all the steps to do so, but then it said "There was an internal error attempting to complete your request." $\endgroup$ Dec 31, 2021 at 22:59
