Now let's move on to the Fuel sub-tab from SimTab, which is one of the most important tabs. Set the parameters to the following (Fig.07):

• Fuel Buoyancy: -0.1
• Ignition Temperature: 100.0
• Burn Rate: 15.0
• Burn Rate Variation: 1
• Heat Production: 10.0
• Expansion: 1.0
• Fuel create smoke: ON
• Smoke Density: 0.2 (animated from frame 0 to frame 20)

Let's have a look at the animation we have done inside the Sim tabs:

• Advection Stride Animation:
  • o Frame 0: 0.25
  • o Frame 10: 0.85
  • o Frame 20: 0.25
• Timescale Animation:
  • o Frame 0: 0.5
  • o Frame 10: 0.85
  • o Frame 20: 0.85 unchanged here until the last frame 100
• Gravity Animation:
  • o Frame 0: 0.5
  • o Frame 10: 0.25
  • o Frame 20: 0.25 unchanged here until the last frame 100
• X Turbulence Animation:
  • o Frame 0: 0.05
  • o Frame 10: 0.025
  • o Frame 20: 0
• Fuel Expansion Animation:
  • o Frame 0: 0.2
  • o Frame 10: 1
  • o Frame 20: 1 unchanged here until the last frame 100
• The rest of all the sub-tabs remain unchanged

Okay, we're done here so let's move on to the Render tab. We do not want any extra details like Fluid Mapping and Wavelet turbulent.

The Render tab contains sub-tabs, so for now we'll focus only on the workable tabs.

Here are the Render tab parameters sub-tab changes:

• StepSize: 5.0%
• The rest remain unchanged.

Smoke sub-tab changes:

• Ambient Color: R,G,B: 26,26,26
• Smoke Color: R,G,B: 64,64,64
• Opacity: 10.0

The ambient color and smoke color settings can be seen in Fig.08.

Alright now it's time to take the final step. Go to the last tab "obj/src" and there you'll find an empty stack. Add the Particle Src you created earlier. Also you'll notice that once you load that source in the FFX GUI, a newly empty stack will be highlighted below. Add your Pf Source inside that Fume FX Particle source (if you have not included it earlier)(Fig.09).

There's a problem with the files you provided, it seems that the 2010 file is actually a 2013; max2010 tells me "file save version 15000" :(
