In Alejandro Files, AutoDopNetwork>pyro(Smoke Object)>Fields>Rest is checked on but AutoDopNetwork>pyro(Smoke Object)>Initial Data>Add Rest Field isn't checked neither AutoDopNetwork>pyrosolver1>Advanced>Rest Field>Enable Rest. So how can it produce Rest datas?

You can see that if you middle click on import_pyro_build>import_pyrofields there are no rest.x rest .y and rest.z, they do appear if you check the Add Rest Field and Enable Rest as previously mentioned.

So i don't really understand how the Alejandro file is interesting for the "Rest" purpose. Maybe i miss something. It's good for the explosion rendering.

This next thread is a good answer:

it has a link to a project that Ian generously share with the odforce community: http://fx-td.com/?p=329

This next link also help to understand, even if the provided file may turn houdini down:

The best answer i've found is in the Steven Knipping tutorials, at the end of Applied Houdini - Dynamics 2 he turns on the rest field and in Dynamics 3 (5b) he explains how to use it. The entire bundle is brilliant, you can watch the 1 out of 6 for free. It's here:
