Re: Better render settings for this object/material

10000 spp is a lot...
yeah, that's just a crazy complex image to resolve with so many reflections and refractions. I wonder if something like photon mapping would eventually help this out - I believe that was once in the works as an additional rendering option, it but I don't know what happened to it.

Re: Better render settings for this object/material

the thing about straight BiDir Pathtracing is it tends to keep clearing up progressively. MLT will show you the pretty caustics sooner, but the overall noise level does not decrease in such a linear way. I used to swear by MLT for everything, but Indigo's normal PT has gotten super fast.

Re: colors in blender vs indigo

doesn't this have to do with Blender's color settings vs the Blendigo export gamma? the color viewing space is editable in Blender's scene tab under color management. But I have also previously edited the Blendigo file to change the the gamma of exported colors (gamma.py, I think...)

Re: Heavy mesh redering

I routinely export meshes from zbrush with many millions of polys and Indigo can handle basically anything you throw at it, as long as you have enough ram... I use blender, so for efficiency in the viewport you can work with a proxy, lower-resolution version, which is linked to the high-res obj.

Re: Loaner machine with a good GPU needed

Hi, I am just bumping this in case someone may be able to help. I have solid dates for the exhibition now, from August 7-18th. The gallery staff has attempted to run my simulation on their computers and of course it doesn't work at all, so I am getting slightly desperate. Please get in touch if ther...

Re: Indigo Renderer 4.2.18 Beta Release

this looks awesome.
can you explain how to apply the render channels? they don't seem to do anything here...

[edit]
nvermind, I found the little dropdown menu above the render viewport. great!

Re: Help creating displacement map

with flooring like this you shouldn't need actual displacement, just use your texture as a bump map and you will get more realistic results. displacement is more often used for larger details and where you need to see that the actual geometry is displaced. fine cracks in the floor won't require this.

Loaner machine with a good GPU needed

Hi, I am just throwing this out there on the off chance someone might be able and willing to help... I have a computer simulation artwork I made in Unreal Engine that will be exhibited in London in August and I'm trying to coordinate the proper hardware for the gallery to properly run it. They have ...

Re: Indigo Renderer 4.2.14 Beta Release

I would second this request: being able to 'include' other scenes through the exporters would be super helpful. I hacked my version of Blendigo to include cameras like this - after tweaking in Indigo I save a separate igs with just the camera settings and then in Blender I can browse to include tha...

Re: [BUG]With GlossyTransp Mtl 3.8 to 4.0

this was an issue with older versions of Indigo, but it was cleared up - have you tried creating a new material from scratch in Indigo 4 that emulates the settings of the material you want?

Re: The best rendering engine?

Does Indigo have anything close to the alshader skin material? given access to that specific head model with all the necessary maps and yes, I think Indigo can achieve something as good as what you see there. Oscar J also makes some good points about the different intent or focus of different engin...

Re: Indigo Renderer 4.0.60 Beta Release

Agree - Blendigo is not the most up to date with Indigo's newest features, definitely in need of an update, but it handles pretty much everything and is very capable.

...this should probably continue in the Blendigo forum if there are still problems you are working out.
