OpenVDB export is in beta testing. It will come sooner than later. Import will take longer.

Hey Oshyan, Is there any chance I can get on testing the beta? I'd love to put the new OpenVDB feature through its paces!

Hey people :)

Subscription plans will be available as an option, beginning some time in the first half of 2018.

So we be well into the second half of the year now, is this still going to happen?

Yes. We shuffled our priorities, but subscription options are coming soon. I stress options because we'll continue to offer perpetual licenses and maintenance plans.

I'm excited about the .VDB import/export functionality. This would give studios another reason to buy/use Terragen. Easy, great looking clouds that can be rendered in other applications?

Yes PLEASE! When can we expect that ?

VDB export is currently in testing and is being fine-tuned for things like correct scaling and density export. There is a discussion thread about it which you may want to read through and participate in here:

Would it be possible to get an option in the render node to do a clay render? It's not just because I think clay renders are beautiful  :), but it could also help with setting up the lighting. It's much easier to see what needs to be done with the lighting if everything is white or grey. Makes it much easier to see how the light and shadows play around in the scene.

You could add, as a workaround, a grey surface shader at the end of the nodes setup that would cover all the other colors. It's not quite the same, but it works for me.

I know, but this is very time consuming when the scene starts to get very complex
