Maya FBX animation import FPS problems


I am trying to use Embergen to generate some simple smoke sims that react to geometry for a Maya project.

My Maya scene is 25fps, when I export my animation as an FBX, upon import to Embergen I check the ‘override FPS’ box.

Problem is, now the FBX animation is playing back really fast inside Embergen and the sim doesn’t react properly as a result.

I saw one tutorial online saying never change the sim hertz from 60hz, another tutorial says you should set the sim to 25hz?

I have tried everything and feel like I’m going round in circles. Please can someone help?

Is this bugged or am I doing something wrong?

Hey this video helps explain a lot about retiming meshes. The EmberGen bit starts at 7:10 but there is relevant information all through out:
