I am trying to create an explosion in Blender. However, when I try to render the explosion, nothing happens, but I can see the explosion in the viewport. Am I doing something wrong, or did I forget to do something?

Note: I have two domains because apparently the smoke will flicker if I only use one.

EDIT: They've fixed this bug.

This is what it looks like in the viewport This is what it looks like when I'm rendering it.

  • $\begingroup$ I used the material generated using the Quick Smoke, "Smoke Domain Material" $\endgroup$

I redid everything in Cycles, and everything seems to be working fine. It seems that I may have had a problem with lighting the the original render.
