Train steam using Pyro and point instead of particles?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm trying to make train steam in Houdini and found this.

I'm edditing this post because I made a progress.

Sadly, if my smoke emitter is static in place, there's ton of smoke produced, but when I move that emitter a little bit in time, smoke is very thin and barely visible. Bumping up velocity to 100,500,1000 makes nothing.

Bake source animation into hip file and post here, without this it's hard to tell what is going on or at least do flipbook video to show.

True, my fault. I tried to search how to bake animation to file but couldn't find it really. The first 20 frames are most important because there's a problem that smoke just vanishes after first 12-14 frames or so, and calculating just one frame after that is like one frame per few minutes, I don't know why (Ryzen 7 4800H here). Video above have much more dense smoke and in description he says that is just two minutes per frame, and that was on 7 years old Core i7.

Learning Houdini at this exact point is hard, because I'm trying to understand complicated dependencies in operators but there are so much similar settings between them in this one little scene and so slow solving of frames makes it hard to understand them quickly.
