Thnx for ALL the help guys. In the process of backing the fluid sim. Have one more question to finish the thread off.
I did a low quality bake to do a test to make sure I was filling the whole pillar. got the setting correct. I am in the process of baking a sim with the resolution of 256, 300 frames, 10 seconds. which is going to take 50 hours. as I am watching the sim, I am noticing that it might not fill all the way with those settings. My question is, after the bake is done, if the pillar is not filled all the way, is there a way to add 5 more seconds without having to do the whole bake over again.
