Re: Need help converting big 3DS file to SKP

Hello, Thank you so much for your help! The file is much smaller as well, which should help. Was it created on a Mac by some chance? I have a Mac, and I am unable to open the file. I can see it in Finder, but when I try to open it up in Sketchup, it's not there. I assume that is because it was not c...

Need help converting big 3DS file to SKP

Hello all, So, I downloaded a rather large 3D model of the city of NYC (It is around 1/3 the buildings on Manhatten) from the city's website. I managed to convert it to 3Ds from a 3DM file, and then somehow imported the 122 mb file in Sketchup on my Macbook Air. Importing into Sketchup alone took se...

Re: UI feedback

Anyway, the online material browser is a great touch! It helps to be able to visualize things without splitting your attention. A couple things that I think would really help to boost productivity -Add a back button and categories for browsing. -Let us adjust the size of the thumbnails with a slider...

Re: UI feedback

Having a lot of fun with Indigo. Some more thoughts 1) "Assign material" doesn't seem to work when the render is paused. I could be wrong, but this makes assigning materials kind of hard if you are using software rendering (I am on a MacBook Air that doesn't really work well with Indigo's GPU render...

Re: UI feedback

My idea as far as a "scene" file was to function more like a continuous session. So, say you nailed down the perfect camera setting in Indigo, but then noticed that you had to make a change in say Sketchup (I know, I am biased.) Indigo would recognize that you are still working on the same project a...

Re: UI feedback

Found a bug it would seem! Render info at the bottom is also cut off when all the panels are chosen to be displayed. Using MacBook Air with Sierra. Would love to see a toggle for some of the options. I have accidentally assigned a material because I didn't realize I was still in "add material" mode....

Re: UI feedback

Hello! So, I just downloaded Indigo 4.0. Much better light layers! Now I don't don't have to use trial and error to tell which is which! Overall a big improvement. I would say there are still some cosmetic changes that can be made to make things look a tad bit more modern, and I would love to see an...

Re: UI feedback

UI designers are one of the mostly highly in demand positions at the moment. Some of the top tech companies are doubling or trippling their investment in user experience design. I don't see why you are so opposed to a better user experience Oscar. User experience is the next big thing. Just look at ...

Re: UI feedback

This is true. I think marketing is a huge part of the equation, as is documentation and plugin support. I think widespread usage in say, the animation industry (eg. Pixar) is a bit of a far fetched goal, though who is to say I guess. ;) I think, Instead, Indigo should aim for more widespread usage a...

Re: UI feedback

Well, as someone who works in the industry and who is familiar with what makes a tool appealing for any particular company, I can tell you that lowering the time it takes to train someone with a particular tool will make it more appealing to a company. Time is money as they say, and any company woul...

UI feedback

Hello, I am a graphic designer, who has been using this lovely tool for many years. I think I stumbled across this site when at least 6 or 7 years ago. I'm so glad I discovered it as Indigo was really a catalyst for launching my career in the creative industry many years later as an adult. I graduat...
