Thanks for the update, darkChief !

Edit : I haven't played that much with this tool so far, but it seems to work one way only (geo > VDB), right ?
I ask because my current project involves some TFD simulation and NPR rendering. It would have been cool if I could convert a TFD sequence (VDB) to geo so I could apply the NPR shader also to the "volumetric" effects.

I have gotten similar requests, the reverse seems very useful so will include something in an update, hopefully soon.

Awesome ! Probably too late for this project, but it will open a lot of possibilities, indeed :thumbsup:

DeepFXworld.com and Liberty3d.com have teamed up again on a new special. We are calling it "FuzzyMath Deals" here at L3D and this one rocks.

Any customer who spends more than $50.00USD dollars in a single purchase from our store at Liberty3d..com from now until November 31st will be given a coupon on a special bundle from DeepRisingFX where you will get 50 dollars off the price of the Colorida and the VDB Splicer bundle on DeepRisingFX.com Normally these would cost 50 bucks each! Now you can get them for both for just 50 bucks (plus applicable tax)! That's totally fuzzy math. Totally. Like... static cling fuzzy.

Customers who make any qualifying purchase (spending 50 bucks or more) on our site until the 31st of November, will be sent a coupon code from us, especially for them to use on the bundle at the deepFXworld.com website.
Keep in mind that we have to issue these codes manually, so be patient.
