I am trying to make a smoke simulation which includes colored smoke. I have tried changing the smoke color in the domain of the simulation, but the color in rendered view mode doesn't change from the default. How can I change it?
Select the smoke flow object and in the physics tab, click the option that says "Smoke Colour" a colour wheel will appear. Using the colour wheel and the lighten darken option to its right, pick your desired colour. Things I did:
added a white plane behind the simulation; it's easier to see.
moved the camera to a better angle
changed the smoke colour in the smoke flow object, not the domain.
To change the smoke colour simply select the smoke domain box in object mode and select the base object, for example a cube, then move over to the physics tab, the flow option under the smoke heading should be automatically selected from there all you do is navigate to the smoke colour option and there you can change the colour.
