Re: Public alpha release of IndigoMax

Question: if you are a current Maxigo user, can you move over to IndigoMax and everything stays as is? Or do you have to re-texture and set render parameters from scratch? I am guessing yes??

Re: XMAS 2012 wishlist

Another thing to add in the wishlist; double-sided materials and invisible lights.

Probably won't happen though... :cry:

Re: Maxigo workflow tutorial

First of all update 3dsMax 2012 first to SP1, then to SP2. That will fix the problem regarding Maxigo not starting Indigo upon export. Usual workflow is to use either Standard materials or use Indigo Material, Indigo Emitter or Indigo Blend. Apply them to your models etc etc. Decide if you are going...

Re: XMAS 2012 wishlist

Please consider this: -- giving the user the ability to change Indigo's Temp folder location. Problem is that if you use the exporter, you can choose your location fine. But if you load a scene manually into Indigo, it defaults to: Users/User Name/AppData/Roaming/Indigo Renderer I have just installe...

Re: Render crashes after an hour every time!

The throttling is handled by the motherboard though? BIOS handles CPU throttling. It monitors temps, and once too high, speeds are downclocked. I can't trust BIOS readings though, because their temperature readings can be misleading. For example if the temp sensor is located at the edge of the CPU ...

Re: Simple Interiors Thread

Promising stuff, Foxar. Don't know whether the sofa is meant to be like that, otherwise it looks to have too much bump. A bit of glossiness could help too.

Re: scattering plugin

Older versions of Maxwell Scatter work with Maxigo/Indigo. I tried them with trees, but textures are not applied correctly to the instances. For basic stuff like grass, it should work well.

Re: Materials creating funny effect

Use larger textures to avoid tiling.

Re: Render crashes after an hour every time!

Try upping the voltage to the CPU within the BIOS.

Re: Best middle price CPU for Indigo?

Galinette, I also went from a Phenom X4 (940) oc'ed to 3.3 Ghz to a Core i7 2600K oc'ed to 4.7Ghz. Performance is much improved; the Erotica test scene as an example used to be around 400-600K with the Phenom, it is now near 1600K+ samples per sec with the Core i7. Temps are much controlled under th...

Re: Acreage - day and dusk

Awesome stuff, Whaat!! Second one is my favourite. Just curiosity rather than anything else, but the tiling on the roof -- it looks like it needs some anisotropy or something, it looks blurry.

Re: details not rendering in indigo

You may, well actually - will need to model the burners properly, ie box modelling.

Re: details not rendering in indigo

The burners need to be modelled with a thickness. Lines/splines will not show up regardless of the condition.

Re: Can indigo run for an animation project?

I Use higher Resolution Render your Frames with 200% of you target resolution, denoise them with a temporal Denoiser and resize back to 100%! Doing so you'll avoid that the denoiser eats up texture detail. There is no speed loose in rendering in Higher Rez, since you are doing Supersampling here "b...
