Website | Discussion Forum | Documentation

OpenVDB is an open source C++ library comprising a novel hierarchical data structure and a large suite of tools for the efficient storage and manipulation of sparse volumetric data discretized on three-dimensional grids. It was developed by DreamWorks Animation for use in volumetric applications typically encountered in feature film production.

Development Repository

This GitHub repository hosts the trunk of the OpenVDB development. This implies that it is the newest public version with the latest features and bug fixes. However, it also means that it has not undergone a lot of testing and is generally less stable than the production releases.

Windows

Installing Dependencies (Boost, TBB, Blosc)

Note that the following commands have only been tested for 64bit systems/libraries. It is recommended to set the

VCPKG_DEFAULT_TRIPLET
environment variable to
x64-windows
to use 64-bit libraries by default. You will also require Git, vcpkg and CMake to be installed.
vcpkg install zlib:x64-windows
vcpkg install blosc:x64-windows
vcpkg install tbb:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-iostreams:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-system:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-any:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-algorithm:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-uuid:x64-windows
vcpkg install boost-interprocess:x64-windows
Building OpenVDB
git clone [email protected]:AcademySoftwareFoundation/openvdb.git
cd openvdb
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=\scripts\buildsystems\vcpkg.cmake -DVCPKG_TARGET_TRIPLET=x64-windows -A x64 ..
cmake --build . --parallel 4 --config Release --target install
