Exploring different techniques

This tutorial explained the volume deform node and how it can be used to manipulate pyro.

These are my tests with the volume deform node. It's pretty versatile, but it's a very heavy node and takes a long time to cache. The results are nice, but I struggled getting the look I wanted.

this tutorial explained how to manipulate pyro with a curve and the gas curve force node.

These are the test I did with this method.

Ideally, I would like to find a way to invert the pyro to get the desired shape. The way this method works is the pyro forms around the curve instead of following the curve.
