Re: Rotate HDRI Background Material in Real Time?

Create a C4D sky and put your EnvMap with the HDRI in the diffuse channel on it. This represents the Indigo sky output 1:1... Not you need to put your whole scene (with cameras!) into a xyz @ 1 Null Object and then rotate that to have a desired result in the viewport. Set the sky object to "do not ...

Rotate HDRI Background Material in Real Time?

When lighting a scene with an HDRI map, there's a lot of trial and error trying to position the camera and the scene objects and lights to match or complement the light source(s) in the map. Is there a way to set up the map in C4D so that I can rotate it and see the result of the rotation in real-ti...

Re: Materials Render Wonky

Anyway, fixed for the next version :) Thanks, Yves! I was just going to ask if this selection tag stuff was fixable in Indigo, or if it should be a user's responsibility to clean up the tags. You sure answered that question! As for the transparency in the materials, I don't know why all of them had...

Re: Materials Render Wonky

Here's a project with relative paths: http://bellunevideo.com/client1/ConservRelative.zip Each of the model's groups has a group tag and then the last selection tag selects the group. I tried deleting the selection tags, but then Indigo apparently couldn't see the groups and they rendered black. It ...

Re: Materials Render Wonky

Near as I can tell, every selection tag is referenced by its matching material. Every material that references a selection tag is used on the object. There aren't any unused tags to delete.

I even tried deleting unused and duplicate materials, but the results were the same.

Re: Materials Render Wonky

Thanks, Yves.

I'll try the tag deletion, although it looks like it may be hard (for me) to figure out which ones are in use and which ones aren't.

I'll post back with results and/or questions.

Re: Materials Render Wonky

Here's a link to a zip file with the C4D project, the OBJ and MTL files, and the texture maps: http://bellunevideo.com/client1/WonkyC4D.zip I had to look up what "selections" were. I'm still not sure I understand completely, but both import methods bring the model into C4D with a lot of polygon sele...

Materials Render Wonky

I've imported a textured object into C4D. When I render with the Standard Renderer, I get this image: C4D_Standard.jpg When I render with Indigo Renderer, I get this image: C4D_Indigo.jpg The wonky render occurs whether or not I convert the materials. If I choose to convert, either inside of C4D or ...

Re: HDRI Questions

Regarding the EnvMap I was actually referring to set the "Spectrum Type" to "uniform" and the "Value" up to 10k... That's interesting, because when I set the Uniform Value to 10k and set the camera to use linear tonemapping, I get an extremely dark, almost no light image. To get a usable scene, I n...

Re: HDRI Questions

NVM: I'm an idiot. The last few renders were using the C4D default camera and not the Indigo camera. When I switched to the Indigo camera, there was a huge difference!

Thanks again,

Re: HDRI Questions

I also would like to second CTZn here, try using for env maps a uniform emission of 10k-100k, its a good starting point for most scenes! Turn your tonemapping to linear or camera, and you'll see :) Where do you change those settings? In the material, I selected Use Emission Scale and Luminance, wit...

Re: HDRI Questions

Thanks, guys. I'll give your excellent suggestions a try. If I can save time converting and rendering, then I'm all for that!
