Arnold 6 VDB not working

Hello

I am using C4D R20 and R21 with Arnold 6.0.2.1

When ever I load and Open vdb it does not show up, does not populate the Available grids section or display a volume container.

I was working with the same Open vdb files earlier this week with c4d to A Arnold 5.? and everything was fine.

The vdb files I am using are from THE PIXEL LAB VDB Smoke Pack and VDB Cloud Pack

When I load any other vdp from https://www.openvdb.org/ they work fine. The Available grids show up like they always have.

When I load THE PIXEL LAB open vdb. I see nothing in the available grids section

Do you know if this is a problem with Arnold 6.0.2.1 only.

I would appreciate any help with this

Thank you

A

Here's the quick fix. After loading the path into the Arnold Volume, change the last four digits to hash marks: Example: Pixel-Lab-VDB/smoke_041_High_Res/smoke_041_0.07_####.vdb

Can you find out which grids the VDB volumes were saved with? density?
