Hey guys, I already issued an update so expect to find it in your DIM very soon.
The fix is very simple (a file is missing in the installer), so if you don't want to wait here is how to do it:

simply download this file: www.alessandromastronardi.com/QA/tbb.zip
and unzip it in your: "My DAZ 3D Library\Scripts\Alessandro_AM\Mesh2Volume\Bin\"

Start Studio, and now all should work perfectly. Thanks, and apologies for the issue.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mesh to Volume... and Back is a one-click tool to convert any mesh to a volume directly in Daz Studio.

It works quickly and efficiently with every figure, prop, or geometry you throw at it. And it comes with customizable noise effects and voxel sizes to allow infinite possibilities in your renders.

And back! That's right, you can even convert the volume back to geometry creating an incredible variety of particle effects, applying any shader you like.

It's a game-changer and the ultimate tool you need to fully experience Daz Studio 4.20+ volumetric features!

All volumes produced are openVDB compliant and can be used in other 3D applications like Blender, Houdini, Cinema 4D, Maya, and more.

Designed for Daz Studio 4.20+, Windows only.

    Little teasers coming, one by one. In this iteration, I'm showing how to convert basic primitives into volumes in just one click, and how the volume can be affected and made more interesting by a noise map.

    It is. I decided to make it a one click tool, so that is very simple to use. There are of course options to customize the result but nothing daunting.

    I'll put something out tomorrow if isn't released yet.

    It is out now. Unfortunately, I have to pass it, as it is Windows only crying

    [bother]! I was so getting this until I noticed the final sentence in the description: Windows only.

    Any chance that this gets ported?
