New Indigo for Revit version with texture support

Written Friday 8 Jun

We have recently released a new version of Indigo for Revit, in which we added, among other things, support for textures in the material conversion.

This simplifies the workflow a lot and it is now much easier to make decent visualisations with no manual changes on the materials at all.

This Revit scene was rendered with Indigo, directly out of Revit with no manual modifications to any of the materials:

We currently support Revit 2011 and 2012 and are working on support for Revit 2013.

Indigo Material Editing Videos

Written Monday 26 Mar

Recently we've been revamping our documentation and tutorials for the release of Indigo 3.2 Stable, which will be released in the coming weeks. As part of this effort we've produced 3 videos illustrating the basics of material editing in Indigo, which you can find on YouTube:

Part 1: Diffuse, Phong and Oren-Nayar
Part 2: Specular, Glossy Transparent and Diffuse Transmitter
Part 3: Texture channels

These short videos are hopefully informative and to-the-point, and we expect to release more videos covering the installation of various exporters soon.

Gritty black & white render, "Decay" by Enslaver

Written Thursday 9 Feb

Well-known for his highly enjoyable abstract works, Indigo forum user Enslaver has knocked another one out of the park with his Daz3D modelled + ivy covered composition "Decay." Currently there's a whole page of compliments in the Simple Renders thread just for this one image!

Produced with the new IndigoMax exporter for 3ds Max, with 60 million polygons worth of ivy, it's a great showcase for what can be done with Indigo's camera controls.
