I’m trying to export the colored smoke template as vdb and include the colors too, but there doesn’t seem to be an option for that. Is there a way of doing this?
To our knowledge, VDB’s do not support colors by default. We have read somewhere that you could potentially store color values in a custom channel, but haven’t looked into it too deeply yet unfortunately.
Would it be possible to separate r-g-b into float channels perhaps? Like red-flames,green-fuel,etc. Or pack it like velocity is done. So they would be repurposed.
Hm. That may not be very ideal as then you couldn’t put other things there. I see.
We might could add some extra channels to VDB. We’ll have to research it
