GitHub

The openvdb repository on GitHub hosts development versions of OpenVDB with the latest features and bug fixes, as well as the generally more stable production releases.

Houdini toolkit

Many, but not all, of the tools in this distribution are included in recent versions of Houdini. Source code is provided here primarily for educational purposes. Houdini version 15.0 or later is required.

Note: Houdini 16.0 ships with OpenVDB 3.3.0, which is a custom version of OpenVDB 4 that is ABI-compatible with OpenVDB 3. To use OpenVDB with Houdini 16.0, be sure to enable the abi=3 option when building both the core library and the Houdini toolkit. For Houdini 16.5, use abi=4 instead.

This Houdini hip file demonstrates many of the nodes in the toolkit and illustrates fundamental concepts such as OpenVDB tree structures, tiles and voxels, narrow-band level sets and fog volumes. More importantly, it presents recommended workflows for common tasks like particle surfacing, polygon conversion, fracturing, filtering, resampling, etc.

OpenVDB Points project

The OpenVDB Points project, developed at Double Negative in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation, extends the OpenVDB data structure and file format with the ability to efficiently store point attribute data. Point positions and associated attributes are spatially segmented and stored in a custom grid, allowing for fast random access. Quantization of attribute data is also natively supported.

Maya toolkit

This preliminary distribution comprises a small number of Maya nodes, primarily for conversion of geometry to and from OpenVDB volumes and for visualization of volumes.

Maya 2016 or later is required.

Sample models

These binary OpenVDB files contain volumetric representations of familiar computer graphics models. They can be viewed with the Houdini tools or with the vdb_view tool included in the OpenVDB library distribution. The original polygonal meshes for several of these models are available from NASA 3D Resources and the Stanford 3D Scanning Repository.
