Pause and Resume VDB export

Is it possible to pause and resume VDB exports from where you left off?

You could find out what frame you stopped on then tell it to start exports on that frame for the next export. But it’d still have to start from the beginning with the sim.

Thanks Nik. I learned that in the export process, Embergen numbers the output VDB files from 01 onward, irrespective of the actual frame number. I’m guessing within each VDB file for each frame, there is some cross-referencing that happens - i.e. I am Frame 7 and I am preceded by Frame 6 and followed by Frame 8 - which would make it not possible to renumber the output files manually?
