ronan ducluzeau (zeauro) added a comment to T53472: Cycles doesn't render smoke properly with adjusted clipping distances.

There is no plan that goes into details for refactoring of smokes or a developer currently working on it for first 2.8. A refactoring of modifiers is expected for the end of 2.8 series but to convert modifiers's stack into modifiers nodes. Addition of an OpenVDB primitive can be done next year or more years later.

@ronan ducluzeau (zeauro)
Thanks for the workaround but the thing is that I need to render like 20 slices along Z and 10 on X and Y each, so 40 slices in total. And then I need to do the same thing with another smoke sim, maybe bigger, so even more slices.
