Rendering VDB files on Zync Online Upload problem

Hi,

 I am currently using a free trial on the google online rendering program zync.

I can upload our project directory fine, except for a sequence of smoke_.####.vdb files. These files are actually named smoke_.0001.vdb, smoke_.0002.vdb etc (and maya will convert the hastags into numbers). However zync is giving me the following error in the maya log window. Any ideas what is going wrong?

NOTICE: File not found: E:/Documents (E Drive)/Uni_Work/Major_project/Maya/Project_lighting/Shadow_Puppets/data/vdb/chimney_smoke_101/smoke_.####.vdb

Hey,

As far as I'm aware, Zync doesn't yet support volume rendering on Arnold.  I've been hassling their support for the last few months, it's on their list to implement but not a priority.  They say they have implemented the Vray volume grid for vray rendering but I haven't had a chance to test that yet.

Cheers,

Chris
