Hi,

I want to purchase VDB for the studio but I need to now if I can make an effect. I'm sure that its possible but I need confirmation.

I want to make the typical exercise of advect particles by fluid, but I need more subtle volume noises like Houdini or 3dmax.

I know that Soup VDB has it, but I dont know if I can use these fields to affect the Maya fluid. So the question is if I can use the flowNoise or other vdb noises to affect a Maya fluid like a typical volume axis.

Other question is if I can pass the colored velocities noise to the Maya Fluid Density and to the Nparticle/instancer/Copier color.

My other option is going to 3dmax, particle flow its powerfull with all this stuff...but I want to stay on Maya for the complete workflow.

Best.

By the sound of it - it is possible. Feels like combination of SOuP and OVDB stuff. Take a look at the curlNoiseField too.

The answer to your second question is - yes, of course.

Feel free to contact me offline if you need more in-depth assistance.

Thanks.

Thanks Peter,

Yes, I know the curl noise field...and its powerfull...

I dont know VDB too much , but my idea would be use the velocity of VDB_flowNoise passed to a customfield to affect a Maya Fluid.
