Short description of error
When baking a fluid sim (fluid or gas), no files are written to the cache directory. Folders like data and config are created but no actual cache files. Simulation works in "replay" mode.
Weird issue/ bug since it worked on my home pc but not on the work pc. No errors reported by blender.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Scale cube up, Apply transform, Make fluid "domain".
- Create sphere and make fluid "flow".
- Set cache directory in domain.
- Cache the sim.
- Look inside the cache directory or try scrubbing the timeline.
