Already Fixed, It was a problem with the different channel names and original intensity from the Phoenix VDB exporter

HI,

We are just testing diferent solutions for our pipeline, so we are looking into phoenix but NOT in a "production" environment, we are just running some tests.

We used from phoenix VDB exported cache the 3 channels of "velocity" (x,y,z), "smoke" for the density and "fuel" for the emission. That's all so far.

Hey, what was the channel name? I couldn't get vdb from phoenix fd to Arnold (in maya) but I did get Arnold archive to work. Can you tell me your work flow?
