Pyro OpenCL vs CPU - Why do the sims differ? Sept. 8, 2018, 2:33 p.m.

Cheers, sorry I meant Open CL using the GPU vs simply not using Open CL.

I didnt know (Atom on odforce mentioned)you can change it to Open CL CPU in the .env file.

So thats great, do some R&D with OpenCL GPU, then final sims with CPU Open CL!

Pyro OpenCL vs CPU - Why do the sims differ? Sept. 5, 2018, 10:41 a.m.

Can someone please give me an indepth explanation as to why the CPU vs GPU sims look different?

I have noticed when making a fire sim, GPU gives a bit more streaky and jagged sim (better licks) than a CPU sim which tends to be a bit more billowy with more ‘shrooms’ or rounder shapes in general.

Sadly GPU crashes on any large scale sims yet I really like the look.

How can I get CPU sims to look as streaky and jagged as GPU?

Any tricks to stop a GPU sim from crashing?
