Re: SkIndigo 2.0.12c (Updated 26 Aug 09)

Indigo will tell the difference by the name :wink: "tree-dummy" will be substituted by "tree", "bench_dummy" by "bench" and so on 8) :shock: AMAZING !!! I guess Indigo looks for the original component, referring to the name before "_dummy", then? :roll: Sounds great anyway!!! Many thanks Pibuz! :D

Re: SkIndigo 2.0.12c (Updated 26 Aug 09)

That's good news! But how does Indigo recognise which dummy belongs to which original? Let's say I have numerous trees and benches, for example. 1) I model an original tree, instance it and replace it with "tree_dummies". 2) I model an original bench, instance it and replace it with "bench_dummies"....

Re: SkIndigo 2.0.12c (Updated 26 Aug 09)

Hi! I tried the "tree_dummy" technique and it works perfectly! 1) Right-click on the original model 2) Select "enable instancing" 3) Model a basic shape and enable instancing on it too 4) Spread around your basic shapes 5) Replace the basic shapes' instances with the original model 6) Render! One mo...

Re: SkIndigo 2.0.12c (Updated 26 Aug 09)

Hi! I'm totally new to "instancing" and I was looking for some tips, until I found this interesting post... So, if I try Pibuz's second method, this means that the "tree_dummies" will be replaced with the original "tree" in the final render, while in the SU view I will only have basic shapes for eve...

Re: First use of an Environment Map

Many thanks Djeego, I'll try it and let you know about it !!!

I'll have to have a look on the internet to see what "instancing" is.
I know components and groups, but nothing about "instances"...

Thanks!

Re: First use of an Environment Map

Thanks Djeego!

Indeed, finding the right settings for light is a hell of a challenge!!!
I think I'll make myself a basic scene with the same polygon repeated several times, but with different values, so I can visually see (so to speak) the effects of the settings.
