[Sidefx-houdini-list] Smoke sim "resetting"

Are you using the pyro shader to render your volumes?

Are you exporting two rest fields (rest & and rest2)?  Do the 'reset' (don't have houdini in front of me - kinda taking a stab in the dark) settings match from the sim to the shader?

IIRC, the default smoke object/smoke solver combo only export a single rest field - while the pyro shader expects two.

Or maybe, i'm crazy ;)

I have a smoke sim that I tweaked a bit on the shader level, making it look a bit more abstract, definitely not photoreal.  My current issue is that it renders fine over a certain amount of frames, and then "resets" somehow, as if the whole simulation had jumped a few frames.  I checked that my noise offset was turned off, but maybe it should be turned on?

I can post a render if this description does not make sense
