You are welcome, Rob
I'd like to get some feedback and wishes on future implementation since it is not always clear how to better implement something here and there. I think openvdb has a far better spreading because of it's wide set of tools for volumetric processing, while field3d is only format by itself ( if i am not mistaken ). And i have feeling that openvdb has more agressive promotion
excellent, well a list or an idea of which bits of VDB code you have implemented into ice nodes and what are there compound names.. or have you converted the entire cookbook!? going inside the compounds you made like solidify level set is actually change grid class. and then I am trying to go to the VDB docs to find where this is detailed but not having much luck to find the correct section or parts of the VDB docs so a wish to make it easier to translate some correlation between the library code functions names in the docs and the ICE compounds.. somehow? eg which compounds are or where are the VDB iterators, or the Tools
Utilities and Tools
OpenVDB provides utility functions and classes for the manipulation of grids and the data they hold. Tools such as those found in GridOperators.h compute vector quantities from scalar data or vice-versa. Other tools perform filtering (Filter.h and LevelSetFilter.h) and interpolation (Interpolation.h) as well as sampling (GridTransformer.h), compositing and constructive solid geometry (Composite.h), and other transformations (ValueTransformer.h). OpenVDB also supports advanced finite difference computations through a variety of local support stencils (Stencils.h).
a simple matter to do some more experimenting & reading on whats there - and I see there is a lot converted already , its a heck of a lot of stuff!
**edit** and a request - I do not see these below:taken from http://www.openvdb.org/download/openvdb_toolset.pdf
I wonder if even VDB guys have done all these yet!
Buoyant density in an incompressible
because in theory this should be way faster to do large scale neighbor lookups using vdb nodes than nearest neighbours in ICE itself?!
