Lighting with exr. Hey is HDRI yet supported?? Aluminium window frames look crap. Fake cautics on the pool bottom ...

My suggestion (though rough) toward the blended material editor. Though I think this also needs more consideration. I think it not only needs to consider maps but materials. It would be nice to be able to use clip maps to allow indigo materials to be blended, for example a building facade (say for c...

Yes thanks mate I'm underway!!! As said to the other thread I think there is another workflow needed for blending materials but no ideas this end. I'm certainly happy with much about Indigo, as to whether it becomes a big part of my work flow? _ I'd suggest so! Glad you got it working. Can you tell...

Have to admit mate there is a definate want there for a Multilight type feature. Even just for simple exteriors the trial and error is a real setup killer!

Yes thanks mate I'm underway!!! I worked out that the Indigo folder was messed up to! Turned out to be a file decompressor I was using as a faster altrnative to widows native. It unzipped the folder and at the same time dragged everything out of the contained folders. Therefore absolutely nothing wo...

Thanks mate I'm just running my first test render now! Haven't tested out Indigo really till now - the sliders on the values in the plug have been a great help to getting started. Still no idea with blended materials. Mate have to say yet again your abilities to pic up an app and run with it just bl...

Thanks Whaat

Simple work around!

I have to say that despite my above point on of the things that I do love about Indigo and the way you have set up the exporter is that colour editing of textures in SU is also exported. Makes it so much easier in many many ways!!!!!

Cheers again mate!

Texture question for Whaat.

Mate as you know to get good render results we need good texture maps. If I use large maps in the SU model the material browser as per normal slows down to billyo and the model itself generally becomes doggy and slow! Particularly when the colour map (is that what is termed here "Albedo"?) bump map ...

Readme.txt Will save the confusion. Hey by the way mate amazing work on the new plugin dialogue boxes!!! You have set a n...

Ahhhh!!!!! I'll try that mate thanks! The zip was called SkIndigo_1_0_8, I just unzipped it and as one would expect it kept the same name! I didn't know I had to rename the Skindigo Folder before dropping it in the Plugins folder. I left a copy of the ruby in the folder and just copied it accross to...

The error message - well the first one, there are a further 44 under "render settings", 102 under "material editor" do you need all of them?

No errors occur under the other options or context click options, excellent!
