I have tried all the methods suggested (i.e. adjusting the Output Mesh attributes) to no avail.
In the rare ocasion when a mesh does somehow show up, it looks very tube/caterpillar-like instead of the liquid spray I had earlier with a much different behavior. In addition, this error will come up a lot when I try a conversion:
|Could not find unique object to query. Please be sure a single particle or soft body object which has goals is selected|
