Bifrost Aero stops simulation and freezes the animation at frame 120

Bifrost Aero stops simulation and freezes the animation at frame 120

I have a simulation of aero creating smoke puffs using setkeys to turn the emitter on and off.  I built this using the default time slider of 120 frames.  Now that I have extended my time slider to 360 frames which is what I need, the simulation just stops at 120 and the smoke stays static and frozen at that frame.  Not even the motion field is affecting it!!!!  

 

Please help!  I am on a deadline and have tried for hours to get the simulation to render past 120

is the sim cache? if so grab the last save cache file and load it as an initial state and continue your sim.

Can show what you got so far? share the file so easy to help and show you. But here is how you added and you should be able to load the last frame of your sim cache.

Here is the file.  I have never used the bifrost graph I don't even know how to connect my aero or emitter into it.

One more try here it is.  I dont think I even have an initial state saved anywhere?

are you using the old aero solver? if so then I have no clue if they have a way to set an initial state, etc. Hopefully, a developer can help then.
