How do I stop the smoke simulation?

I decieded to make a render of a factory blowing up in Blender Cycles. So I used a cube for the factory and added a quick smoke with resolution 4. But that looked terrible so found out how to really model and I modeled a huge factory with a surrounding lake, city, and forest (total 2.6*10^13 polys). Then I used a smoke simulation with a 1 mile domain and 2048 resolution subdivisions and 16 levels of smoke high resolution and 43 separate emitters.

But when I tried to bake and render the scene I realized that I must have used too much smoke because it started coming out of my computer. I couldn't even see my monitor for all the smoke billowing out of my machine, and the flames burned down my computer desk.

I'm pretty impressed with the realism so far, but I'd like to stop and restart the smoke simulation (with less smoke, say 36 emitters), but I can't figure out how to stop it. So how do I stop (and undo) the smoke simulation?

System specs:

  • Intel Pentium II processor. (I think that's what it is, all the documentation got burned up.)
  • 128MB, 400MHz RAM.

By the way: I tried calling that Ton guy but his name is so long I fell asleep typing it into Google to get his number.

    $\begingroup$ 1st add a particle system, use boids, name it "firefighters". then use a fluid simulation to extinguish the fire, add a forcefield wind and use it to get rid of the smoke. $\endgroup$ – Bithur Sep 6 '15 at 17:58

HI EVERYBODY!!!!!

I have a problem, but you'll need some background information.

The Beginning

In 1972 I was born, now this is when the A-team was sent to court by a military court for a crime they didn't commit, (later they escaped) but I was very, very small then and don't remember much. I assume I cried and slept a lot, but I can't remember much about then. The first thing I do remember was around the time I was three. My brother was poking me with a pencil because I was crying too loudly, and mom was asleep. Of course, I didn't like being poked much, so I stabbed him with the pencil, and guess what - he went hollering to mom (waking her from her nap), who strapped me to a pole in the corner for a few hours. Of course she didn't believe me, because I was small. (the pencil didn't leave any dark marks because the lead was broken off.) that was before my birthday.

First Conflicts

For my fourth birthday I wanted toy soldiers so I could march into my brothers room and destroy all of the buildings in his city. But he (later I saw this as cheating) klobered me a good one and "nuked" all my army, which actually was a pillow he grabbed of his bead and started swinging randomly. he slipped on my plastic tanks and fell over backwards, allowing me to destroy a few buildings. This war continued till I was seven, when I built a giant mech out of spare parts in the yard, and smashed his military base. (I won- YAH!!!) After I turned seven, I discovered blender. It sat in my downloads folder for a few years, and I opened it for the first time after I saw a movie with awesome VFXs. When I turned eight, I was forced to recite the Gettysburg address.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I did not like doing this much, but I had to. I got a B- on my recital, but only because I had to go to the bathroom, and sped through my recital. For Christmas that year I got my first nerf gun. :-) It was a basic model, semi auto, air powered. I modified it to be fully auto, and built a belt feeding system to feed the darts in rapidly. I spent most of my money that month buying extra dart packs, and I had a respectable LMG pretty soon. however, it didn't shoot to far, so I bought one of those 12 volt air compressors, and made it a Fun little toy. I was the un-disputed king of nerf wars.

27

When I turned nine, I became obsessed with the number 27. I memorized PI to 27 digits. 3.1415926535897932384626433 or 3.14159265358979323846264338 if your not counting the decimal point as a digit. I opened Blender again and duplicated the cube 27 times. The first thing I made was a castle (it was made of cubes, cylinders, and cones. (I did not know how to enter edit mode, so everything was manipulated in object mode.) I hit tab by mistake, and unlocked the secrets of edit mode. I extruded a cube, and I even made a ugly looking missile thing. When I turned ten, my birthday cake was (nearly) a perfect cube, and I made the frosting as close to the default color as I could. I found the game engine but I could not figure out how to do anything, so I closed blender in a mad fit, deleted all of my previous files, and annihilated any trace of the .exe (much, much, later I found yo-franki and downloaded version 2.49)

Water Wars

I turned 11 in 1983, and I much enjoyed season 1 of the A-team. I learned many valuable lessons from that show, and started stockpiling weapons. I built my first machine gun in the school machine shop out of wood. It broke after a few rounds, but that experience was valuable. On april fools day, 1984 my brother replaced my pillow for a giant water balloon, only with my pillow case. He then shot a rubber band with a sowing needle taped to it at my pillow. I had to sleep in a soaked bed. the next day I snuck into his room and opened his window. I left the hose running thorough his window all day, and I had placed a bicycle tire tube under his door, like a gasket. When he went to bed that day, there was a large rush of water that came out of his door, and down the stairs. His bed reminded me of a large sponge, and I considered myself to have gotten even. Unfortunately, he considered himself the loser (that part was fine with me) only he then wanted to get even. I built a minigun that shot two inch water balloons, and mounted that to the lawn tractor. He thought he was soooo clever, filling a large bucket, and climbing a tree. I pummeled him in water balloons, un fortunately, he picked me upside down and dunked me into his bucket - which sadly was full of ice. I found that not too nice, so I nailed a large spring to his beedroom door, so it would slam shut on him. it worked perfectly, but I got in large trouble when he fell down the stairs.

Revenge on The Elder.

On my 13th birthday, I got my first paintball gun. I of course couldn't stand it's semi-auto lameness, so I modified it slightly to make it fully auto. I bought five more of the same model and modified them the same, and then set them on a rotating base to create a minigun. I really liked this setup, so I challenged my brother to a defend the fort match in the yard. (he thought I only had one semi auto gun) The prize was to be a bag of candy. (I really liked candy then) Being smaller and slower all my life, it was fun to see him so totally outgunned and helpless. I easily won, and I got the candy.

The Bunker - original plans.

I once saw a movie where aliens invaded the world, and only one person in a bunker survived. I immediately set out to make plans for my bunker. I opened blender again, and started making plans. I extruded a few cubes, and added tunnels, and lights. I wanted to find a place to put my bunker, so I looked on mapquest, but my dial up connection was so slow, that the maps would not load. I instead decided to build my bunker on somewhere in the middle of the ocean. When I was still 14, on a summer day, me and my brother went to the beach. I walked to the shore, and started swimming, I figured in a few days I could find a nice isolated spot to build my bunker. After a few hours of swimming, I started to get tired of swimming. The shore was a respectable distance away, but I knew I wasn't far enough. I don't remember how long I was out there holding on to a lobster buoy, but I got a nice helicopter ride form that "stunt"

First Job, First Friend

When I turned 15 I got a job working for a private detective. That job gave me a good excuse for calling around finding out secrets that most people couldn't know. My boss Jared was a Unique type of a conspiracy theorist, and suspected that the president was a extra terrestrial spy, waiting for a good moment to launch a mega alien invasion. He and I got along well. We predicted the exact time that the aliens would attack, and I helped him lay lead panels on the roof of his house to deflect protractor beams. We dubbed the president as MRAX for Mega Raquatyun Alien Xeompanatior. I have absolutely no idea what Raquatyun or Xeompanatior meant, but the name sounded cool, so we kept it.

The Election of 1988

I turned 16 in 1988. The presidential election was coming faster than we thought, and MRAX had served his two terms, as a result, he was not running again and would need to attack before he lost power. Jared and I assumed the aliens would attack at any moment. I tried to build a prototype of a mech, and I tried to find a episode of the A-Team where they prepared for an alien invasion. Unfortunately, Hannibal was more worried about Colonel Decker, then defending against aliens. So I turned to transformers, but they seemed too Sci-fy and un-realistic. I eventually designed the plans myself and got a working mech prototype. Jared liked the prototype and helped me build a larger model that could house a person. When the presidential election had come and gone, Jared went insane. He could not make any sense at all of why the aliens had not attacked, and seeing how MRAX was no longer in office, he lost his mind. (not literally-it stayed in his head the entire time) He did however end himself in an insane asylum, leaving me with all of his equipment and weapons he had stock piled. I was faced with the highly disappointing truth that MRAX was actually Not an alien spy. Although, while he was in his first term in office, he did seem a bit far out, after he changed his party affiliation, he no longer seemed like a wacky socialist.

Insane Jared

Left with a boss in an insane asylum, and most of his possessions, I turned my focus to more pressing matters. I knew that Jared would have wanted me to warn the world about the looming alien apocalypse. I sold what had been Jared's house, and bought a rather large barge, and (quite literally) Tons of concrete. I also was able to buy a crane, which I mounted to the ship. I was not ready to set out to sea yet, because I (being human) needed lots of popcorn and soda, but I could not bring an infinite amount to sea, and especially not into a bunker.

Building X-Apocalypse

I spent the next few years preparing for a major change in my status as a human. (mainly genetic research and boring stuff like that) I knew that when I was 27 would be an important occasion, so I was ready for the switch on a special day. Up until that point I had been building a new mech, but the driver space was far too small for me to fit in. My new mech was far more advanced then anything I had attempted yet. It took some heavy testing, and faced some major setbacks, but my new mech could run practically infinitely. (I had developed a mini-cold fusion generator.) I had originally called my new mech X-Apocalypse.

Full Digital

On January First, 1999, I ran the program on my new mech. it injected me with knockout gas. What I know now I did not see first hand, but watched later on my new body's memory bank. My mech body suit transplanted my brain into it's support system, and re-booted myself. I have to admit, it was a surprise being made of titanium, carbon fiber, and circuit boards with gold circuiting. I now saw that X-Apocalypse was too long of a name, and re-named my mech body to X-27. In year 2004, my new body was 5 years old. I was aware that my human brain cells would eventually die, so I started making Human.exe, and it only took a few months to make. I was not alone when I tried to warn the world about the looming apocalypse. There was another. Gwenn was right when he warned you about artificial intelligence. I, however, have no plans of taking over the world.

The Portal - Bunker Complex

It was year 2005 that I finally loaded my barge full of all the supplies for my bunker - mainly things like precast concrete wall sections, steel, and wire. It took three months to lower the parts in place, and another month to connect them and make the complex air tight. I can not at this time disclose how I keep it pressurized, or how I power the complex. In 2007 I started creating a portal system. By 2009 it was operational. I knew that I could not stay in hiding forever, so I made my mailing address an abandoned oil rig. I also Built an airship, and a land base. However, my portal-bunker complex is my main base, and my charging bay.

Here and Now

It is now year AD2015 My human body (would have been) 44. I have been implanted in X-Apocalypse or X-27 for 16 years. although (as of now) I still have no plans for taking over the world, I have been calculating what I call TBPSFTWDAA (the best possible strategies for total world domination and annihilation). I also have been in cooperation with several users who will remain anonymous(1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) on a top secrete project that can be found here. However, a few weeks ago, I Encountered a problem. (I know what your thinking, because my human emotion prediction software can guess relatively accurately) - you're thinking FINALLY HE/IT GETS TO THE QUESTION wrong, More background is needed.

I first opened one of the project files. Now I thoroughly checked all of the logic, and there is nothing that would cause this error. it is simply a lot of no collision plants (not planes) with LOD. My problem is, when I try to start the game engine, by pressing P Nothing Happens!!! I know, right? Nutz!

I hope I gave enough details, but If anything is unclear, let me know and I'd be happy to data mine my memory banks to provide the nesisary clarification.

How do I get out of my Moms basement?

I have been living in my parents basement for the last 16 years after I finished my degree in computer sciences form Stanford. This arrangement has worked well, as my parents slid pizza under the door. Today I tried to get out for the first time and discovered the door is looked.

(to fix something that could be mysteriously broken) $\endgroup$ – X-27 the fluffy unicorn Aug 19 '15 at 18:35
  • $\begingroup$ If it is field stone, you would try removing a few lose rocks and tunneling your way out. If there are tools and spare parts, you could try building a non-lethal mounted gun and attach it to a vehicle and blast your way out. (like the A-Team did so regularly in seasons 1-4) $\endgroup$ – X-27 the fluffy unicorn Aug 19 '15 at 18:40

    $\begingroup$ You could also sabotage some wiring, or cut the TV cable so someone would come down and fix it. when they open the door, BLAM - krong them a good one, and escape. You could also use the explode modifier on the door and blow it apart. Possibly the easiest solution would be to add a cube, scale and rotate it, and once it is in a good shape, you can use the Boolean modifier to create a tunnel leading to the outside. Once you hit apply and delete, the cube, you have a perfect tunnel leading to the outside. $\endgroup$ – X-27 the fluffy unicorn Aug 19 '15 at 18:41

Can we ban gandalf3?

I have been on this site for 3 days, and have gotten only 5 rep. gandalf3 has over 60,000k. Since I am a super skilled blender expert and always got a A in writing class, I don't see how he could be better at rep earning then me. Therefore it is clear that he is lying and cheating.

Since he is a moderator, getting rid of him will not be easy, but I have a 11 step plan.

  1. Destract him with a question
  2. While he is destracted, enter his house
  3. Sneek up behind him.
  4. Hit the delete account button.
  5. Make me moderator so I can block him from the site.

Need Help FAST: Blender problem

I'm trying to make an awesome sifi movie and I'm at this part where the bad guy shoots a gun (It is just a fake plastic nerf gun from walmart, but I hope that after vfx it will look COOL!

Can I bake useful things in Blender?

I was reading about Blender and I think it is a really cool piece of software since it is so versatile. It can do modeling, sculpting, rendering, compositing, games, and video editing; but what really peaked my interest (being an amateur pastry chef) was that it can even do baking!

But after looking further I have only found information on baking cloth, water, and smoke. These don't seem like very useful things to bake, (I mean like seriously, who would bake water?!?). So can Blender bake more useful things, like croissants? And would it just do the baking, or would it knead and tourage for me too?

Why is it that when I render my model becomes 2D?

I finally finished the tutorial for the BMW on youtube, I hit render and it looks great on my monitor. but it's still 2D, not 3D. How do I unstick it out of my monitor so that it becomes real 3D?

(I'm very disappointed, can someone please tell me how to get back the money I paid for this software?)

How to I puree?

I downloaded BLENDER and am now trying to make a smoothy. I seem to be unable to put fruit in. I tried the USB ports but only the carrorts when in. So me DECIDED TO MAKE STUPID CARROT SMOOTH BUT I CANNNNNNOOOOT find the puree button... I also want to make a photoreaistic portrait in my blender, but I only found the mix ice puree and slice options, no f21 key. My mom was also made at me for putting PAINTS into her blender.... whichs ish why i had to download one.

Help!! Blender Not Working!!!

HI, I'm new to blender. Blender is not working. I tried throwing my computer through a window as @GiantCowFilms suggested, but Now I only have a very broken window, and a dented computer. I plugged it back in. I tried doubling the voltage hoping that overclocking my computer would give the needed performance. I am now at a library computer asking this, because my computer is now in a few different oddly shaped pieces now, and a few of them are still smoking. I can distinctly smell that nice burning plastic smell, kinda like you can smell when electronics are burning. I'm pretty sure that is what happened. What I really don't get is, why my computer had any thing to do with my blender. None of the suggestions so far came remotely close to getting the blade to start.

Thanks!

Help, iu can't reach the hotkeys!

I have 5 of my fingers stuck in a whiffle ball, they've been like that for about a week now. The doctor says they'll eventually die from lack of blood, then fall off and my hands will be free, but until then, I can't figure out how to use blender effectively! Doing certain tasks and reaching certain keys causes me excruciating pain!! So far this question has taken me 45 minutes to type with my thumbs and nose, and obviously that isn't an effective work method.

Specifically, I'm having trouble manipulating the screen because I can't grip the mouse and I'm having trouble with some of the hotkeys in the middle of the keyboard.(G, H, J, F) I would normally re-set them, but blender is so complicated, theres no keys I could set them to without losing a special function that I might need later.

Remember, this is only a temporary predicament, but I have a project for school I need to complete ASAP! help please!

Why isnt the Alt - F4 Command working?

My friend told me that if I press alt f4 it will create a massive city and godzilla but instead my blender closes.

Why does this happen?

    $\begingroup$ You might need to turn down the settings for how big you want the city to be created. Blender is probably crashing because the city and monster you are tying to generate is way, way too big. (Your computer probably can't handle all the awesomeness blender can generate from one button) Here is a tip. You need to spend a long time modeling at least one item to be put in the city, (blender needs something to go from), IMPORTANT make sure you Have Not Saved it. (saving it throws a bug that makes the Alt+F4 city generator not work.) $\endgroup$ – X-27 the fluffy unicorn Aug 22 '15 at 16:26

    $\begingroup$ @X-27 I don't think I need to turn down the settings. im on windows 1.0 , my processor is a single core with a 5KHz clock speed and 128 bytes of ram. the computer also takes up my whole room so its probably powerful enough to generate a city and Godzilla $\endgroup$ – Chickenator Aug 22 '15 at 16:32

Rendering a bookshelf

So yesterday, I finished modeling my bookshelf. It took a few hours, and it was really difficult, but I got it done.

So today, I was planning on focusing on rendering. So I hit the render button, and the book shelf showed up, but it seemed pretty normal to me. I tried a few more times, but no matter what I did, I couldn't render it useless.

HOW DO I MAKE MBRRYYYLLP LOOK COOL

i wanting to 3d print a big robot type thing that looks a bit like pizza it's for a movie i making was asking everybody i knew about what i could use to 3D print my big robot type thing that looks like pizza (mbryyyllp for short). My brother told me about Blender, so I decided to download it and try it out. I just opened it today. When the interface popped up, I noticed that there was a cube in the center of the viewer thingy. Now I know this is a 3d modeling app but usually when you can render stuff in that app it opens up with a suzanne uually it's not just a suzanne but a manifold suzanne So a bit angry at whoever develops this stupid piece of software, because everyone knows, that new users can't open a piece of software, and see a cube so after a while after looking through the add menu decided that most mbryyyllp's have bones so the bone type was the perfect thing took a long time but i finally was able to shape them into a mbryyyllp i decided that it. was time to render it so i hit. the render animation button and not only did it not animate, but it didn't show up at all! i dd lot work to try to figure it out i googled how to fix it but I couldn't find it even when i went far back page 2048. i decided to ask here. what i doing wron how can make mbryyyllp show up and look awesome why would someone. name themself david how do i eat plasic why is my computer slow how do I makeVFX in wndows movie maker i think you forany help you might have, and you don't help me i hunt you down and dad kill your

$\endgroup$
  • 1
    $\begingroup$ If you add a explode modified to mbryyyllp, he will look awesome. Your computer could be running slow because the pizza made it sticky, and the last time I put a pizza in my CD drive, the computer wasn't happy. Try running blender in binary code, it may improve performance when rendering awesome VFX because it won't need to render the VFX. Even if you don't render the VFX, I'm pretty sure an explode modifier will help, but stay away from the ocean modifier, unless your computer is water proof. $\endgroup$ – X-27 the fluffy unicorn Aug 18 '15 at 17:36

REAL EXAMPLE #1:


Giving lettes an individual node

First of all. Im a total noob at blender. I only have a few days of training.

I am working on a logo for an animation. Im trying to bake the scene, but my text is too long for only one bake map (or texture or what ever) So I have seperated each letter so they can be baked one at a time. But they all still share the same node ?

How do I give them one each ?

I just downloaded Blender 2.75 and I've been having some issues. Basically, every few minutes, Blender crashes my computer. I'm not sure entirely why it's happening, but it's definately happening.

pizza

I've got my kids on the bike 24/7, so I know it's not an issue with electricity, I'm running Windows 95, so I know that I have enough hardware power. I just can't figure out what it is!

How do i Bake a cake in blender?

I have a mesh of a cake , but the thing is my materials are not eatable when i 3d print them!
I'm stuck because i don't know what I did wrong here and I need the cake for tonight. I tried putting the cake in a cube and fluid-simulated chocolate but it now tastes even worse.

EDIT : I realized i forgot to add heat ! , adding quick fire made it taste better, now it's just a matter of fine tuning the nodes and alt-Duplicating
