Re: Do Indigo/Blendigo support custom vertex normals ?

@pixie, what format do you want this in ? The original file is in Blender, but I use an external material for the glass ( Lead Crystal form the material DB) and an HDRI for some of the illumination. I cannot pack these into the Blender file, but can "ship" those with the Blender file, then you'll ha...

Re: Do Indigo/Blendigo support custom vertex normals ?

When imported geometry has custom vertex normals, the Object Data Panel in Blender will allow you to clear the Custom Split Normals Data. Otherwise you can add that data. The imported .obj does have custom (split) vertex normals, as expected. The .stl does not, also as expected. In LuxCore render th...

Do Indigo/Blendigo support custom vertex normals ?

I am not sure whether or not this needs to be supported in Blendigo and Indigo. CAD models, when exported as .obj contain custom vertex normals (custom split vertex normals in Blender). This helps reducing render artifacts and can only be worked around to a degree by exporting models with very high ...

Re: Just a random doodle render

It's not a very well-known CAD software but has some powerful modeling tools that are not present in that form in packages that are much more expensive. , e.g. SolidWorks.

Just a random doodle render

Most people, around here are using Polygon/Sup-D modeling software to create models. This object was modeled in ZW3d, a CAD application. Exported as a triangulated .stl mesh and then imported into Blender where the simple cloth background was added.

Re: Submitting a Proper" .pigs (.vui) file to the Ranch Render Farm

Tuns out that I had Pathtracing/GPU enabled and that created the problem.

Never mind ;-)

Submitting a Proper" .pigs (.vui) file to the Ranch Render Farm

I've done this before successfully but now cannot get the Ranch Render Farm to accept the file as it always fails the validation stage.

I can create a .pigs file just fine, re-open it in Indigo and it renders.

Re: Blendigo 4.2.2

There is a post in this thread viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15240, which explains how to install this manually. Mainly it revolves around just moving the file folder with the plugin files manually.

Re: Blendigo 4.2.2

I have Blendigo 4.2.2 enabled in the Bender 2.8 preferences, but it does not show up in the available render engine settings. Are you sure this works ?

Edit: Forget that. Found the solution in the "other" thread.

Re: Pavoda Rendering Thread

The renders are very well done. However, there is one little detail that jumps into my eye in almost all of your renders and that is the scale of the wood floors. The size of the grain and the size of the individual planks are 30-50% too large. It helps to know that we as a human species already hav...

Re: Visible difference between GPU and CPU renders

@fused Thanks for the tip. increasing Path Depth does indeed eliminate these dark areas. it's just not a setting available in the Blendigo UI (or I simply have to look harder ): @Contefugo: All of these images have rendered for 40 minutes on a 2017 MacBook Pro with a Radeon Pro 560. This is not usua...

Visible difference between GPU and CPU renders

I rendered this simple test scene to see how GPU Pathtracing would compare to CPU rendering, BIDIR MLT in this case. My interest was mainly to see evaluate difference between dispersion and caustics. Both images rendered for 40 minutes.the light source is a HDRI with many small light sources and the...
