Re: Using Indigo on a laptop

Interesting it takes so long with such a powerful machine. I use sketchup and the sketchup model files themselves are normally around 50mb in size. Scenes are normally lit with a hdri. Once the render time hits 8 minutes the image is smooth. Leaving it for 16 minutes won't improve the image quality....

Re: Using Indigo on a laptop

Thanks Bosseye, appreciate your feedback. 48-72 hours is a hell of alot! Even with the most complex scenes I've worked on takes a maximum of one hour. All externals take 8 minutes max it's just some of the interiors with 6ish light layers can take an hour to render properly. But thanks for establish...

Using Indigo on a laptop

Hi Guys, Hopefully some of you can give me your insight. I have been using indigo on my home PC for two years and am now looking into buying a laptop so I can use indigo on the move - for example if I go on holiday or head over to another part of the country for a few weeks at a time. My PC spec is:...

Re: August 2012 Competition - Materials & Lighting

Thanks ctzn, I reduced the resolution massively in photoshop for the purpose of getting some feedback. The real file is 5mb and everything is sharper. Glad you like it, cheers!

Re: August 2012 Competition - Materials & Lighting

Cheers Pibuz!
I'll admit I'm a bit of a rookie when it comes to bump maps, I know of them and I know where the tutorial is but haven't gotten around to learning the technique yet :S
All the best

Re: August 2012 Competition - Materials & Lighting

Hi Pibuz, Thanks for your quick reply and comments. The good thing about having the bed near the bar is you can fall into it if the drinking gets heavy.... I'll have a look at these links now - cheers! Could you give me a little more info on your following comment: "Also, I think you should work a l...

Re: August 2012 Competition - Materials & Lighting

Hey guys, Thought I'd upload my WIP for some comments.... looking for some advice on the realism angle! I'm also interested in what camera setting you guys use for your renders? I tend to go with Advantix-100... Pibuz, if you get this message, where do you get your HDR environment map from? I'd also...

Re: Instancing

Thanks for looking into this Whaat. When you say that instancing is done automatically, are you saying that there is no option for instancing in skindigo and that if you have 100 trees (that are the same) in the scene, that skindigo will automatically use instancing and therefore the scene will star...

Instancing

Hi Guys, I upgraded from Indigo 2.4 to 3.2 yesterday and have tried rendering some of my models (that contain instancing) and for some reason they do not render with skindigo. Everything just crashed. There are lots of trees and grass in the scenes. I have tried looking for answers on the forum thro...

Re: Render crashes after an hour every time!

Ok, My problem is solved anyway but no idea if the two are related - I brought my computer in to see what was going on and as it turns out the hard drive was totally fried! Hence why my computer was crashing half way through a render. got a new 64 gb hard drive - 'C drive' and now everything is fine...

Re: Render crashes after an hour every time!

Just to give you guys an update... Indigo doesn't crash before the hour any more and that is down to me taking the following steps: After working on the computer all day, turn off the computer for 15 minutes, open the sides of the computer box slightly - so the hot air rises out. Turn on the compute...

Re: Render crashes after an hour every time!

Hi Pure Spider,

Really appreciate you sending those links - There are a few interesting solutions to try out - Like defragging... as it could be a computer memory issue. I will keep you posted but if all fails I will be forced to bring it into the computer shop which will end up being costly : (
