Faster Rendering

Indigo 2.4 is dramatically faster than Indigo 2.2, a result of numerous optimisations in the core rendering engine: vastly more efficient MLT, up to 2X faster instancing and motion blur in complex scenes, colour noise is completely eliminated, 4X faster blackbody illumination and many other substantial improvements.

Material shaders run 10-20X faster in 64 bit mode with Indigo 2.4 than Indigo 2.2, a night-and-day performance difference for complex materials.

Improved User Interface

The interface is more capable and easy to use than ever.

New features include an image histogram, improved zooming controls, aspect ratio locking and the ability to select a region for copying or zooming in on. You can now set the colour temperature of light layers with the new light layer interface.

Indigo 2.4 simply looks better - we've added support for CSS themes, and have included a new dark theme.

Improved Handling of Images

Indigo 2.4 now supports saving 32-bit per channel images using OpenEXR, the industry standard for high dynamic range (HDR) images, without clipping and optionally without tone mapping. These important improvements provide increased flexibility in post-processing using other applications.

Very large images (greater than 2GB) can now be saved, resumed from, and used in network rendering.

Introducing the Indigo Network Manager

Network rendering in Indigo 2.4 is much more robust and flexible, easily scaling across large networks using the new Indigo Network Manager.

Stopping and starting networking during rendering happens at the click of a button, and the Network Manager now balances available slaves among masters.

Floating Licences

Indigo 2.4 introduces floating licences, which allow for easy deployment and administration of Indigo in offices and computer labs. Floating licences are served by the network manager, and so can service any computer on your network.

Uncompromising Accuracy

The most demanding professional users use Indigo Renderer because of its focus on physical accuracy and image quality. Famous for its ability to render photorealistic illumination, Indigo sets the standard for realistic rendering.

Features such physically-correct metal and glass materials, sub-surface scattering, motion blur, sun and sky illumination, aperture diffraction (camera glare) and many others are all implemented to the highest level of physical accuracy. Indigo Renderer features an excellent implementation of the Metropolis Light Transport algorithm to efficiently deal with such complex lighting environments.
