    Thought it would be cool to share some R&D i worked on for creating a flame FX without doing any simulation purely through deforming geo. A pretty simple FX nothing too crazy but i though i should share it as some people might be trying to do similar things. I've included the Hip file as well as notes explaining the vop workflows. I'm very much a novice to Houdini's more technical side so excuse any rookie mistakes, critique welcome as well if you think i can improve my workflow. Non_Simulated_Flame.hipnc

    This is a great tutorial for candle flame. It's not in English, but easy enough to follow along. If I remember correctly the "Timescale" setting of your pyro sim is one of the most important parameters for getting away from that campfire look.

    Sure. Attaching file for Houdini 17. This should work in Houdini 16 as well. Let me know if something does not look right. ssh_kelvin_wake.hipnc

    hey all i thought i'd add to this as i've been banging my head off it for most of today alembic with maya seems to suck goat cheese... i tried a heap of things to get the uvs out... anyway i read on another thread that someone used an attribute promote to transfer the vertex uvs to point uvs before they exported. this made no sense but i gave it a go and weirdly it worked?! fbx seems to have work for still frames but a sequence wouldn't play ball annoyingly dont know whats going on there. (i'm using maya 2015.5 btw here for the lolz)
