Hello everyone. As you read this, please keep in mind that the name of my production company is below, but it's not anything official, so please don't steal it.

Ironically, I totally forget what my render settings were for the second render, and I haven't been able to replicate it. Do any of you guys know what I should do? And yes, I'd like to render the smoke layer and the other layers separately, if possible.
