Any chance of volumetric materials?

Love the new improvements to the render engine,

but is there any chance we might get to render physical clouds in Rhino some day?

Hello- I do not know of that specific item but in general I think it is safe to say the renderer will continue to get better… so yes, I’d say there is a chance, but no schedule…


You can now kind of, grab the Voxel program Dendro for Grasshopper and download clouds in VDB format. See this discussion, though might not be what you are looking for.

cheers! will check that out though its idd not quite what i’m looking for seen as its mostly the render material thats the issue.

I haven’t exposed the volumetric nodes for shaders yet. But it is on my future todo list.
