Shadow matte and VDB

Hi,


Im trying to render a shadow pass of a VDB and dont get any results. It works fine with particles, but when I add a VDB no shadow is rendering. Is there a known limitation?


Thanks

Hi Christopher,

I wasn't able to repro this on my own. The simple scene I put together seems to work ok. Can you tell me a little more about your scene. Which lights are you using? Perhaps also a full verbosity log would be helpful or even better if you have a simple way to reproduce it posting that as an .ass file would be great!
