  13. Cloud noise with rest field

    Here what is working for me: 1.I store rest field of points scattered on a sphere before moving it around with a simple transform 2.I then convert the scattered points into a vdb density and apply some noise on it using volume vop 3.Since I base my noise on the rest field inside my volume vop, my noise does not float This is all good ---- But i just cann't get this to work with a cloud noise Although I am trying to use a rest field inside the volume vop of the cloud noise, the noise still seems to float I have attached a scene file showing both above rest.hiplc
