I do not know how you approached coloring these but Adam Swaab explains how to make color work with MaterialX materials here: []

The Rhino Scene:
Karma CPU was taking too long for me to wait for it. It said the ETA was 2 hours after waiting for 10 minutes.
Karma XPU: 06 minutes 45 seconds

Pyro Scene:
Karma CPU again couldn't wait for it to finish, was stating that it will take 35 minutes.
Karma XPU: 39 seconds

Did anybody do a pyro test with XPU?

In the Houdini 19 HIVE presentation Adam Swaab shows how to render pyro with XPU which is by using the new pyropreview material but I can't make it work.

Any ideas?

You need to convert all Houdini volumes (Density and Scatter at least) to VDBs with Convert VDB node.

Yep that did the trick. Why didn't I think of it before.

Thank you very much!
