  • $\begingroup$ a very common and usual answer from stackexchange , but this one was frank and clear , but i found a not so true solution , and it is to scale the smoke after baking and saving the bake , but im digging in solutions and i hope find one , i also multiplied the gravity factor and it moves a bit , i also tried collection instancing which didn't work , if i just found which factor is causing this , very thanks for your participation ( i will post the final thing eh ) $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 28, 2022 at 13:45
  • $\begingroup$ what effect are you trying to achieve? have you tried adding the modifier manually instead of using the quick smoke? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Luciano Thanks for your participation my friend , doing it manually is the same unfortunately , what is happening right now is that blender won't allow us to work with big parameters and idk why :| $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 28, 2022 at 14:29

this does not work super well but in some scenarios it does. You need to scale the values for time and resolution at the same rate as the domain. Hope this helps. It is however generally better to scale the whole scene down.
