...Also (though I imagine this would be in the works) some option to use indigo materials from a library as Maxwell's Auto MXM works currently. I like all the ideas you posted Richard.... ...But PLEASE, NO MXM library of some kind with broken connections to the texture folders etc... The Maxwell MX...

hi richard, If you want to use indigo (or any other renderer) you will have to learn some basic things. I know, there might be too less documentation for indigo but terms like "diffuse" and "phong" are a common standards which you have to know. You also could have a look on the manuals of maxwell o...

Mate sounds like you needed shadows turned on to enable some light. I have found it renders much like skydome in MR.

Well I'd actually say align them to the maxwell exporter! Seeing this is going to likely swamp the SU / Maxwell community! I would also suggest it would be great if there could be a channel selection for each material with a thumb of the material for each channel eg: opacity map, clip map, bump map,...

I have to say I haven't had any luck getting the right sort of reflections from any materials as the terminology and acceptable values to achieve the desired result mean nothing to me! I know Indigo is in beta but I do hope that many of this terminology is simplified so that those without the experi...

Exactly mate. True or near true, in other words I guess a camera at infinity so as to create true flat rendered elevations.

Cheers!

Mate I'm sure all will appreciate the visit but just be mindful the aim of the PPB mods is actually to try and keep it design and not so much tech related. I don't mind though but I know they do!

Cheers mate!

Mate I think that is a bit of a must really. I know it was a specific undertaking of NextLimit to introduce a solution for this via the AGS!!!

You are right mate I don't give the glass thickness. Because I've been using maxwell I haven't been as they have a single plane solution for glass.

Looks if I might contiue to utilise Indigo I will need to change this practice!

By the way saw your PPB thread this morning and thanks!

Ouch, those surfaces will need a CTRL+'pushpull' and some normal checking. Sketchup needs a good multiple pushpull tool to make this go fast. btw, a single surface also works but i haven't tested the difference in appearance yet. cheers The thing is mate I have 33 diferent window components in the ...

can you post a pic of your presumed 'glass failure'? :?:
Mate I never seem to be able to work that out. RichardHead!!!

I can get realistic view through glass set at index 1.0 but need 1.52 to get reflections then no light penetrates - well not quickly!!!!

Hello m8! I suppose that indigo uses physical modelled cameras, so that will be impossible :wink: Use vray for that! Mate I'm sure it will be possible, if you turn to background light it will render but dark. It certainly can be done with maxwell so i'd imagine the developers will also wish to do s...
