Re: Indigo Renderer 4.4.1 Beta / Technology Preview

It will probably be a while before I try it out but I like that the devs are keeping up on major features. Was just watching videos from siggraph seems all the "big" names have implemented some version, intel, nvidia, or proprietary, of noise reduction to cut render times. It is great to see that In...

Re: Sculptures Whitaker Studio

I had a few quirks show up when I was rendering the next tests, I did some manual frame correction on the night, the day rendered fine and my individual sculpture tests were fine. Like before these are the same scene but different files optimized for day/night. Both of these require 2-3 sub-object l...

Re: Sculptures Whitaker Studio

The dev team has been a major help lately with getting sketchup & keyframe animation plugin's "tweens" to export correctly for rendering. I've linked a couple test samples from last week. Do to time constraints I under rendered the frames (450 spp bidirection mlt for the night, and ~550 samples path...

Re: Render queue invalid

Many thanks, again, to the Nick & Indigo team, They got back to me and have made a working exporter for Keyframe Animations "tweens" files. I did discover that you need to set your frame rate and make sure you turn on object animation then export. I would post my very simple test clip but I can't di...

Re: Sculptures Whitaker Studio

Couple weeks ago I was able to start reworking my materials, a few problems I've always had are texture mapping and how easy it is to get lost with many layers of blend mat. Any advice is appreciated here is where I am at: Existing model library: Texture tests previous.jpg Planned improvements: Text...

Re: Render queue invalid

CNorberg, For a little while Keyframe animation removed the "tweens" option and I think that killed any chance of it working with indigo for a little while, fortunately the most recent version brought the "tweens" back, and now lists support for a few renders. My limited understanding of indigo is t...

Re: Affinity Photo

Thanks Juju, I took a quick look at the website and Affinity Photo looks promising and at that price is worth checking out in the near future. After initial group composition nearly all my layout & spacing work is done in AutoCAD LT, the lack of dxf/dwg on the Affinity designer is a deal killer for ...

If any readers are wondering the WIP part of my work is simply trying to refine/correct/improve rendering techniques and workflow, I generally don't get time to revisit renders for a single project before I need to deliver visuals and spacing layouts. Here is the latest, Per Oscars suggestions I app...

Sculptures Whitaker Studio

Oscar, thanks for the suggestion. I had heard of Nik collection, and will give them a try. Sculpture lighting simulation was the primary reason I first started using Indigo, the studio agrees lighting adds a lot to the sculptures. We always offer lighting as a recommended option to any commercial or...

This is a concept composed by the Artist Lyman Whitaker for an arboretum, a simpler and more symmetrical composition was pick for the actual exhibition. I do think this may be one of my bes...
