I'm doing the Volumentric Fire Tutorial found here:
http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/tutorials/specialfx/volumetric_fire/volumetric_fire.html

I'm trying to do this because I need something faster than HVs. Well the tutorial is going well, but when I animate the Turbulance procedurals Z position the fire lifts off the ground...kind of like a fire ball. This seems direclty linked to the falloff setting. When it turn it off the fire animates as it should...but the falloff is gone and the fire effect isn't really realistic anymore.

Has anyone else done this and got it to work? I must be missing something simple, but I've gone over the tutorial about six times now.
