An introduction to Indigo RendererIndigo Renderer is an unbiased, physically based and photorealistic renderer which simulates the physics of light to achieve near-perfect image realism. With an advanced physical camera model, a super-realistic materials system and the ability to simulate complex lighting situations through Metropolis Light Transport, Indigo Renderer is capable of producing the highest levels of realism demanded by architectural and product visualization.

"Since Indigo is a unbiased renderer without many abstract settings and options to tweak for hours like other render engines, you end up quickly with great results!
I prefer to work for 1h setting up an Indigo scene and render for 5h, than setting up a scene for 5h and render only in 1h! "
