How to Make a Cycles Shader for Axiom Fire

Resilient Picture Company shows how you can render axiom-created fire with Blender Cycles.

Krishna Bala (Resilient Picture Company) showed off working with the Axiom solver; a sparse, GPU accelerated volumetric fluid solver for Side FX Houdini created by Matt Puchala, a long-time FX TD in the industry. That tutorial used Redshift to render the scene.

This new tutorial from Krishna shows how you can render axiom fire using Cycles in Blender. “This is for those who don’t have Redshift.” Krishna notes. You can use free blender cycles as a powerful alternative render engine for the Axiom Solver.
