V-Ray for 3ds Max – Quick Tutorial: Volumetrics Part 2

In a previous video – Volumetrics part 1 – we talked about the VRayEnvironmentFog and VRayAerialPerspective effects. In this second part, we examine the VRayVolumeGrid, which allows for loading and rendering volumetric cache files, such as OpenVDB, Field3D, and PhoenixFD aura files.
