What is Bindings tab in Pyro Bake Volume? Nov. 20, 2023, 10:29 a.m.

The Bindings tab simply responsible to assign the right volume for the right functionality.

For example, Pyro Solver would output a volume named 'density', therefore the Smoke Volume set to 'density' by default to use that as the volume for smoke visualisation. Similarly you can choose what other volumes assigned for 'Scatter' or 'Fire'.

For the majority of cases, you can leave these settings on their default value.

How to get old file cache node in Houdini 19 July 27, 2022, 5:58 p.m.

the new file cache is rubbish. Explicit or constructed it does not save the file while just playbacking the scene. it's horrible.
Unfortunately, the 'Automatic' file mode is indeed not included. It is simply a 'write' or 'read' tool to make the topnet integration simpler.

While not the most ideal if you used to that workflow, as mentioned by others, I would also recommend to switch back to the previous filecache version if this is a must feature for you, or please use the file sop.
