Method

The Field cache node allows you to store the animation of a field to disk. This allows the animation to be scrubbed in time, and for simulations to run deterministically without the need to use effectors.
Cached fields may perform significantly better than running simulations live.

Example Nodegraph
When the baking is finished the effectors may be disabled.

Notes

Field caching can generate very large files. The frame rate and field resolution will influence the size of the cached file.
