I’ll just start by saying that I’m fairly new to C4D and Houdini so please forgive me for my noob question!
So, I’ve created a short smoke animation in Houdini and exported it as a .vdb file. Once I import it into Cinema (r20 using the Physical Renderer) the file appears in the viewport and animates but nothing is present upon rendering - just a blank screen. I have a scene set up with lights but still nothing. I’m looking to create a still for the final result - Just an exploratory composition piece like you see on Behance. Would greatly appreciate any guidance on this one. I've attached an example image of what I'm trying to achieve. Thanks, guys!
