BAT doesn't pack smoke cache
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Attached is a .blend file. If you bake the smoke cache and pack it with BAT, it won't pack the smoke cache files.

This is related to: T55007

Event Timeline

Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to 50.

Yep, smoke is not implemented (yet), rBASTdfa07e19cc35 just did it for fluids...

So cdef eModifierType_Smokesim = 31 and corresponding modifier_walker is still missing.

I could have a go at it (just started fiddeling with BAT and P732 is a start -- but needs further love [just pointcache, no OpenVDB, ...] -- also this suffers from the same glob vs. pathlib.Path.exists() issue as in T55007, T55539)

But before I continue, I would like to ask @Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) if this is better placed on his desk?
Also this is probably not a bug, but a known limitation and more of a TODO?

My plate is already pretty full with Code Quest stuff, so I appreciate your help. P732 seems like a good first step. Once you're a bit further, in a diffusion patch and I can give you some more feedback. For now I've commented on P732.

oki, will see what I can do...
