Combining Houdini vec volumes to VDB vec volumes


Recommended Posts

Trying to convert my Houdini volumes to VDB before caching to disk.

In my network after dopIO I have a VDB vector Merge followed by a Convert VDB.

Should I not only see 3 volumes on the VDB vector Merge node >density, vel, temperature?

Right now I see 5 density, vel.x, vel.y, vel.z, temperature.

I think the vector merge can only merge VDBs, so reversing the order of convertVDB and vectormerge should do the trick

Also, you might want to set the vector type on the vectorMerge to the correct type (i think it's called displacement/vel/acceleration) so it gets interpreted correctly in some other operations
