Domain Cache Settings

This page documents the domain settings for the 'FLIP Fluid Cache' panel.

Parameters

Cache Directory The directory that will be used for reading/writing simulation meshes and data. This directory should contain only files that are created by the simulator. Each .blend file should have its own separate cache directory. If multiple .blend files share the same cache directory, cache files will be overwritten if one .blend file resets or re-bakes the simulation.
WARNING: The cache directory should not be set to a location inside of a Dropbox folder. You may get 'Access Denied' errors when the addon attempts to access cache files that the Dropbox application is also accessing.
Make Relative Convert the cache directory path to a path relative to the .blend file. The .blend file must be saved before this operation can be performed.
Make Absolute Convert the cache directory path to an absolute path.
