View Full Version : OpenVDB-The Gas Solver

02-26-2019, 03:01 PM
Well..I actually just tested the gas solver the very first time today.

the first "sim" yielded a gas look that I can instantly say will enhance Lightwave´s capability of doing a Nebula in the style of the M16 eagle nebulosa.

I need to spend some more time with it before I can post any good results though, especially coloring it.
The good thing is that it yields those fine tendril cascades that often can be seen in nebulas.

I did notice one thing I miss though, if I would like to do cloud stuff as well, the volumetric item shape in lightwave 2019 introduced additional shadow intensity control, but it is nowhere to be found in the openVDB settings, I would like
to have the same control there as in the volumetric item system.

Thanks for those reminders, I´ve been to sloppy with that..I need to improve that part.
To busy evaluating before my days of the trial period is over though, once I have tried 2019 enough, I will gather a list.
