Short description of the error: A separate domain, which adapts to the scale of the smoke, is not created. Instead, the original smoke domain resizes itself during the animation, causing the simulated smoke to distort.

Exact steps to reproduce the error (based on the startup file):

  • With the default cube selected, open the search menu (F3) and select "Quick Smoke".
  • With the Smoke Domain selected, enable "Adaptive Domain", in the Physics panel.
  • Play the animation.

Note: The problem is not exclusive to the "Quick Smoke" feature, as it also occurs when the procedure of making a smoke simulation is done manually, that is, by adding an emitter and a domain, and giving them their respective settings in the Physics panel. Additionally, the problem is not mitigated after applying the scale of the domain.
