When to use native Volumes instead of VDB

Recommended Posts

Not expert, but as far as I understand it, native volumes were initially developed to handle volumes needed in modeling and simulation (e.g. pyro for example is still volume based), and I guess after VDB standard/algorithms were developed, Houdini implemented them and eventually they are trying to make tools work with both native and VDB volumes. Hmmm, to answer to your question, I "think" in modeling you can use VDB volumes, and in simulation you would have no choice as Houdini uses native volumes instead...
