Will OpenVDB replace Houdini's volumes?


Recommended Posts


I read here that it's faster than Houdini's volumes. When it's fully implemented, will it sort of replace the default volume ops? Just wondering if it's advisable to learn OpenVDB instead of the default volume tools? Or is it likely that one would be using both collectively?

Thanks :)

Thanks Mark, I thought the VDB stuff was basically re-inventing/redefining the volumes to be more efficient and generic. Kind of how there are serializers, and then there is Protocol Buffers and Thrift, even though they are also serializers. Not the best analogy but that was what I was thinking :)
