Hi all, just got Houdini 18.9.416 and HtoA 5.2.1 working.
Saw this in the new features list:
"Volume rendering with support for OpenVDB and particles."
I know this may not directly apply to the Arnold USD delegate, but looking here it says VDB assets are supported.
I have a Solaris scene setup that imports a VDB as a USD volume with fieldName = density. The VDB is rendering using Houdini GL with Solaris, but nothing with Arnold. I've assigned an Arnold Standard Volume shader to the volume and made sure I can see a simple sphere in Arnold so the renderer is working for geo.
I also get this error when Arnold first tries to render the VDB volume:
[HdArnold] Cannot load _htoa_pygeo library required for volume rendering in Solaris
I've attached my simple HIP file:
Any got VDB volumes to render through Arnold in Solaris?
