A large percentage of the visual effects created in films are volumetric or partially volumetric. OpenVDB is a volume former that is compact, adaptive, and very fast. It's also unbounded so values can be as large or small as you like. There are no limits. It has been adopted by many software companies and used in V-Ray, Maxwell Render, RealFlow, Arnold, Octane Render, and more. Now you can tap into the power with Cinema 4D R20!
If you want to get into the very technical aspects of VDB, watch this lecture from Ken Museth, Manager and Senior Principal Engineer of Research and Development, DreamWorks Animation.
