I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm just getting started with ExplosiaFX, and while it's mostly intuitive, there are a few things that are confusing to me. The documentation is pretty brief in parts. Can someone explain in leyman's terms the difference between Fuel/Heat/temperature, and their contribution to the simulation? Coming from TFD, I have a little undestanding, but it seems things are a little different here. From what I know (In TFD), fuel is useful for creating both smoke and fire together, and if you want to create fire independently, you would use temperature, but XP doesn't emit temperature, so is heat another term for that? If so why can you emit heat, but not display it, and only temperature? To add to the confusion, in the material settings, you can add fire to temperature/ fuel or fire. So where does this fire parameter all of a sudden come from?
If I turn down the heat emission to 0% and use fuel at 100%, the heat parameters still apply, so i'm assuming fuel emits heat too independent of the heat emission parameter.
I Would also like to know the effects of the burning settings in the simulation tab have on the simulation?
It seems to me the terminology needs to be a bit more uniformed, but maybe my lack of understanding is the main issue, and hoping someone can help clarify. Any help would be much appreciated.
