Motion Vector Pass for Volumes?


(Siddhantrane) #1

Anybody know how to get a motion vector pass for smoke and fire out of Cycles?
I need to get an MV pass for compositing the motion blur in post, but Cycles renders the vector of the entire domain box, not the volumetrics.

I don’t think motion blur for volumes is supported in cycles atm.

Aw man. Thanks for your answer… I guess I’ll just use some other render engine for volumetrics… Any recommendations that are able to render volumetric vectors?

Good question. Most of my experience is with cycles. I’m going to guess that renderman can deliver a motion vector pass because I found this research paper from 2016 that talks about a new data structure they’ve developed for rendering volumetric motion blur.

Thanks! I’ll look into that.
