Sardi Pax has a quick look at using MantaFlow smoke and fire in Blender.
Blender 2.82 sees a new fluid simulation system called Mantaflow. The new system will ultimately replace Blender’s older tools for creating gas, smoke, fire, and liquid simulations.
Sardi Pax has a look at how you can create fire and smoke effects with Mantaflow using Blender 2.82. Mantaflow is still mostly an experimental branch of Blender. Still, it’s exciting to see how easy the new system will make creating effects. Mantaflow is an open-source fluid simulation framework developed and maintained at the Games Engineering group of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
