The volumetrics are not yet supported. I will try to accelerate development :))
CentiLeo Chat:
I was able to get pouring water to work with volume and emitters. I have thought of trying to figure out how to make clouds, too. Isn't there some way to make them?
Also, is there any kind of new roadmap? I was hoping to use compositing tags at some point. :D
I ask Kirgman this question from time to time :)

Yes, volumetrics are needed, so we need to make them sooner :)
As for the roadmap for short term:
0.65) Accelerartion for scene compilation and rendering + documentation online
0.66) Hair and spline native support without polygons
0.67) Material converter initial project
0.68) More internal image post processing tools
0.69) More AOV/extra images output including masks, compositing tag and other relevant thigns
0.70) Connection with more of other 3rd party plugins that can be valuable for renderer in both 3ds Max and Cinema 4D
CentiLeo Chat:
I was just trying to look into loading a vdb explosion and noticed it wasn't rendering. Is it going to be integrated with the volume loader inside C4D or be a separate volume loading system within Centileo?
Also, is there plans to have atmosphere as part of this system or separate as well?

nevermind. I didn't realize I needed to put the C4D Volume Loader as a child of the Volume Mesher.
It works quite well :D Also, here is a site with dozens of free vdb explosions.

One thing I am having trouble with is positioning the sun for the sunlight object.
It is very difficult to find the correct latitude and longitude to position it exactly where I want it. Is there a way to make that easier in the future?
And if I want it in a certain direction I am unable to lower the sun unless I rotate the entire scene toward it on the opposite side, because it doesn't seem to want to set below a certain angle in the South latitude.
And will there be a way later to make the sun visible to the camera?

Hi KBB! Right now I am optimizing the hair & spline rendering and storage size, it's going to be great! They will be supported in the next 0.68 release.
However, VDB will appear after the first commercial release
