I am trying to run the fluid simulation in an animation project. Say, the start of simulatin is frame 40, end of simulation is frame 60. But the total animation goes to frame 200. The domain and inflow object should not be visible outside the 40-60 range. If I play with the visibilities, it does not bake. How do I solve this. Thanks.
I'm also new here and also still new to blender but an idea that came to my mind immediately is to have two scenes or better ".blend files". One with the fluid simulation and one without. Render the frames 0 - 40 and 60 - 200 from the one scene with no fluid, and the remaining frames from the scene with the fluid.
After that, just stitch the resulting frames together as you please.
