Re: AMD Radeon VII Mac Mini 2018 or Radeon Pro 575X iMac

Hi Oscar, I went with the iMac configuration with Radeon 580x (midrange) but went with an eGPU for it with a Vega 64. I got the enclosure, just waiting for the GPU to test it. Not sure if Indigo will detect this as a dual GPU setup or if I have to select one. Hope this solution works nicely, thanks...

Re: Better render settings for this object/material

Would have suggested blasting it in GPU mode, but you probably need a lot of path depth.

I'm not sure you need MLT for a scene like this, as there's no particularly hard caustics to solve due to the fairly flat lighting. Tried BiDir without MLT?

Re: AMD Radeon VII Mac Mini 2018 or Radeon Pro 575X iMac

I can only refer to the Benchmark database for indications of what cards perform well on Mac. Me, I'm using an ancient Radeon HD 7970, though if I was rendering more I'd definitely upgrade.

Re: AMD Radeon VII Mac Mini 2018 or Radeon Pro 575X iMac

For rendering, I would definitely recommend an eGPU config over those mid-range graphics crammed into the tight form factor of an iMac. I use an eGPU with my Macbook Pro with Indigo and I'm quite happy with it.

The silence in response to the OPs question is really rather disturbing :/
The latest Blendigo thread is here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15118

I agree that it'd be nice to know when a 2.8 build may be out.

Re: MacBook Pro 2018 I9

@Oscar J I've had the same concern when rendering on my now over 10 year old iMac. While that for obvious reasons never included the GPU it did get hot for long periods of time. But it still works. Granted, its not a notebook! Cool, and yeah - those old iMacs are just so solid. I wasn't so lucky wi...

Re: MacBook Pro 2018 I9

Should be a good setup if you, like me, need a MBP to carry around. I use a 2015 15" i7 MBP with an eGPU (AMD HD 7970, an ancient card by now). I don't render much, so haven't really needed upgrading my graphics, but even with this GPU I see speedups of around 5 - 10X over my CPU and internal AMD gr...

Re: Oscar's rendering thread

Some renders after a year of radio silence. :oops: I'm studying a car design master in Germany these days, meaning lots of sketching and just the occasional renders of the finished product. This is a spare time projects I've been fiddling with for a while.

Re: Render Farms for Animation?

Neither RANCH or Rebus support PIGQ files, for some reason (lack of demand I guess), so it's rather impractical to render Indigo animations on render farms. https://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=14259&p=138950&hilit=queue#p138977 https://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/viewtopic.php...

Re: Adding a second GPU

Oh , i see...but could it be really useless? I mean ,would it not give some extra little power even if is an old model or that gpu has not the required technology to work for OpenCL? :? Well, consider that the oldest Nvidia GPU in the benchmark is a GTX 560 and that provides about 5% of the perform...

The GTX will probably be pretty useless for OpenCL rendering. But you're right, no need for SLI when rendering with Indigo. :)
Hi Oscar J !

What do you mean with the useless GTX ?
I meant the GTX480 that Pibuz was talking about.

Re: [REQ] DPI settings inside Indigo +

A 1000 x 1000 image will only be 300 dpi if you print it in, like, post stamp size.

Required resolution = 300 dpi * size of your printed media, in inches.

Re: Missing installer for Blendigo Mac?

First of all, use this: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15118

Second, zip the "indigo_exporter" folder and use "install from archive" option in the blender add-ons menu, using this zip file. That's how I usually do it.
