VDB Smoke Pack 3 Volumetrics Atmosphere Fog

Incredible Realism

Attention to Detail

Every animation has real world smoke characteristics.


Choose Your Resolution

All 50 elements come in 2 versions: a lower quality one for faster renders and an incredibly high quality version for closeups and hero shots.

A Unique Resource

Seamlessly integrate smoke into your scenes

There aren’t many animated .vdbs out there, especially such a large collection. We’re proud to have a huge variety so you can find the perfect animation for your scene!

Firstly, love the quality. Second, love how these packs save me a ton of time, allowing me to focus on other areas of my workflow. Much easier to pull from a well made pack vs doing your own x-particle sims.

Here are the 50 Animated VDBs included

These are low resolution playblasts so you can preview the animations. (They start at number 101 because this is a continuation of our Smoke Pack 1 and 2 which have the first 100).

I remember wondering 2 years ago why there were no animated VDBs to be found online. I figured it was because of the file size, but still. Not being able to find a single one was just as odd as it was frustrating. So huge thanks for putting this together, truly. Sometimes I just want to slap a little smoke sim somewhere and setting everything up with TFD can take some time. much appreciated!

If you have never used a .vdb, here are two videos from our VDB Cloud Pack showing the workflow
Also, you can watch this video to learn about how to set up animated VDBs in Octane and Redshift

Saves so much time not having to do simulations and you have so many options to choose from. Rarely do I have to jump into Houdini or Xparticles unless I have to do something super specific.

The VDB smoke is a brilliant product – it’s hard to believe there’s not more out there as it’s really like 3d stock footage; making something that’s a pain to setup into a drag-and-drop experience. Having animated sequences is especially cool, and the durations (20 seconds mostly) are also very usable.
