I have just updated to 2.77 version and was very exited about using GPU for rendering fire.

When I tried to render the test scene I got this:

GPU render

Though it should look like this (rendered on CPU):

CPU render

Blender is rendering domain solid black for some reason. I got the following configuration:

AMD Radeon R280x (3Gb)

OpenCL Version

    $\begingroup$ AMD Cards might still have some driver issues and are not fully supported yet as fas as I know... $\endgroup$ – Samoth Apr 6 '16 at 18:59

At the time of writing, smoke/fire is still currently only supported on CUDA/Nvidia cards.

  • $\begingroup$ I asked a question on 2.77 smoke and fire recently, too, that related to your answer on a python script to bake smoke. I use that script, but it stopped working when I upgraded to 2.77. Could you please look at my question here: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/49591/… Thanks in advance. $\endgroup$ – Shady Puck Apr 7 '16 at 22:30

I have noticed a bug i think , i have a gpu cuda nvidia card, and the render with smoke/fire works fine, IF i only have one smoke domain in the scene, if I add 2 or three they wont render, only the first one. switch to cpu and all render.
