Toon Shader - Volumes

Hi. I am currently working on a project and want to use Toon Shader. I need some volumetrics in some scenes like VDB clouds and explosions. Is there a way to use volumes with Toon Shader?

Depending on the host, I am not a c4d person at all.

But technically, you can "mesh" an explosion with a volume_to_mesh construct.
The meshed Explosion files will work with the toon shader.


You can look into Houdini, or Bifrost if c4d does not have such a workflow ready.

Its not really Arnold issue, its more like a general tool/trick to do the conversion that is needed I think. ( then Arnold dev also dont need to do this render time by converting the vdb to mesh based on some switch some place )

Sorry, but no.

Volumes, motion blur, DOF and the VR camera do not currently work with the Toon shader.
