[SOLVED]Source Scale Volume Has No Affect?

Hi All,

I have come across this before but just moved on. This time I really wonder why the Scale values on the Source Volume node seem to have no affect on output at all?

In this image the Source Scale Volume is set to 0.1. This means I  have reduced fuel intake by 90% but I still get that furious combustion rolling out. Why doesn't the Scale Source Volume reduce the fuel amount?

How do I "thin-out" my flame. I'm making a campfire, not a rocket engine?

In my opinion, scaling source volume does reduce the fuel amount but the difference is not huge as you are still feeding the same temperature for the fuel that it's using. So reduce the temperature value as well, and for some nice flame patterns you might wanna play with temperature intensity ramp in the pyro shader. Cheers!

Thanks, you are right,. If I lower both the Scale Source Volume and the Scale Temperature, I do get a "cooler" burn in my pyro. I guess I'll keep dialing them down till it looks right.
