Re: The best rendering engine?

Okay Oscar, as far as porting a shader that's been in "biased" rendering engines into Indigo, I guess your right. Let's say Indigo wanted to port a shader that's only been in "biased" rendering engines... like diffuse. You can't port diffuse into Indigo! Diffuse is clearly written for a fundamentall...

Re: The best rendering engine?

Zom-B… I was asked why Indigo should use the alshader. I brought up the rendering engines that use it. Your response is it’s discontinued. When I show examples of the skin shader vs indigo skin shader you scream “NOT FAIR!” …. okay. To Oscar, Is Vray going to drop the alshader because it’s not being...

Re: The best rendering engine?

You would like to see a discontinued shader system that exists almost exclusively in Arnold? :) I'm sure it's great, but maybe it's rather some of the features in the shading system that could be relevant for Indigo? I guess your right... Someone should tell Vray, Redshift, and Appleseed they are u...

Re: The best rendering engine?

"The noise pattern on the floor texture indicates indigo for me... the very last one."

Nice guess.
A Renderman
B modo
C Luxrender
Other rendering engines are "getting gud." A import part of a rendering engine is the materials. I would love to see the alshader in Indigo 4.

This is Indigo:

Re: The best rendering engine?

Which engine is the best? Doesn't matter. It come down to number of light bounces and materials. The image below is from 3 renders. The choice is: modo, renderman, luxrender, vray, or indigo. Can you tell which is Indigo? (On a side rant: Can you tell me why Indigo still uses Phong? Shouldn't Indigo...

(Request) Disney’s BRDF Material -it's opensource

:idea: Disneys’ shader has gone open source. This would be a great resource for Indigo to have. It’s even been worked into Cycles. Link to pdf https://disney-animation.s3.amazonaws.com/library/s2012_pbs_disney_brdf_notes_v2.pdf :arrow: Hate Disney? When you hear Elsa sing “let it go,” it makes you w...

Re: Blendigo 3.8.5.2

Check your .pigm, check Material Name property in the .pigm files, some of your pigm's may have same Material Name, so indigo replace materials with the same Material Name, I used about 20 external materials all works fine. It's my fault. I didn't have the blended layers named. Went back, renamed t...

Possible bug

Blendigo is having trouble with more then 4 external materials. I have 10 poly models with linked materials. (Indigo Render material Settings - Material Type - External.) If I render out more then 4 external materials Blendigo renders everything with the same material. Less then 4 and it renders out...
