Arnold volume settings. Grids set to 'density' and 'temperature'.

Standard Volume 

  • Create an Arnold Shader Network. Inside that, create a Standard Volume shader and connect it to Volume of the OUT_material.
  • Change the Emission Mode to Density and the Emission Channel to temperature as this is the grid that we want to change.

Ramp RGB

  • Create a Ramp RGB and connect it to the Emission Color input of the Standard Volume shader.
  • Change the colors of the ramp to look like the color temperature of an explosion.

Volume Sample Float

We can use a Volume Sample Float shader to control the appearance of our fire volume effect. This shader will remap the values of the 3D voxel grid in the same manner as tone-mapping and remapping filters to an image in Photoshop, which operates in a 2D grid.

  • Select the Sampling tab of the Volume Sample Float shader and enter 'temperature' in the Channel field. This will remap the temperature grid of the Volume using the colors from the Ramp RGB.

  • Select the Remap tab. Change the values of the Volume Sample Float shader to that in the image below:
