3DS Max Arnold VDB not showing

Hello,

like discribed VDBs are not showing in my Drawing. I just wanted to explore the Scene from:https://docs.arnoldrenderer.com/display/A5AF3DSUG/Rendering+a+Cloud

But if I open the Scene it only shows the Physical Sky but not the Cloud.

I even tryed to create a new Scene but if I open the VDB it asks for Grids, but there are no to select. Img from Tutorial (I have no options there):

My Scene Showcase:

Tryed other VDB Scenes aswell, all with the same result, does somebody know how to solve this?

(Sry for my bad English)

Greetings

Philipp

You assigned a Standard Volume to it right?

I should show the Density grid enabled when it loads the VDB. Just click on OK and it should work.

Yes, I tried it first with the scene file and it didnt worked, becuse i forgot to downloade the Files from Disney, but even after its still not working. I think it has something to do with the VDB Grids, i couldnt select any Grids no matter wich vdb i tried (even tried the other Tutorials with vdb files, all are not showing)

It looks like you haven't downloaded the vdb file link in the tutorial. Download it and open it in the volume.
