currently I'm making a scene, where I want a torch to have fire, I watched a few tutorials, I made a fire by pressing spacebar --> quick smoke, then I clicked on fire and got a fire animation, is there anyway to make this in render view? It's not an animation by the way, tell me if you need a .blend
I'm assuming you do not have the flame attributes node hooked up to your node set up.
In the material, add an attribute node and type flame into the text field
hook up the fac output to a color ramp
add an emissions node and set its out put to the volume in the material output node
Connect the color ramp to the strength input on the emission node
