Chaotica fractals used in Dr Strange

Not mentioned in the article directly, but one can see it in the shots at the bottom and they are known users :D

Re: Is it Possible to Create a Rainbow Arch

I remember seeing an example of this on Nick's blog. old-old-old, like before Indigo was Indigo(?) I don't know if it was a true rainbow arch, but something similar was definitely possible at some point, at least experimentally. I know this is not very helpful, but the mention of a rainbow just bro...

Re: Indigo Renderer 4.0.46 Beta Release

I do already have the latest drivers, version 375.86 released just today. That's so strange. The GTX 1070 is definitely supported, it's pretty much the best GPU for Indigo 4 right now, I have one in my computer. I really can't think of any reason why it isn't being detected on your computer, there ...

Re: TERRAGEN 4

Sometime in the 90s or early 2000s, I was nearly contracted to code a global illumination engine for Terragen... one of my bigger regrets, not sealing that deal!

Nothing but respect for Matt Fairclough and his creation, Terragen is awesome :D

Re: Indigo Renderer 4.0.46 Beta Release

I don't think we can set this via OpenCL, it's handled by the driver. On the other hand, you can set the thread affinity in Task Manager to stop it from using certain logical cores; on the other-other hand, this should not be necessary and might be a bad idea - if a computer has 100% usage, that doe...

Re: Sroka8888 Rendering Thread

Wow, thanks for this test Sroka! RedShift has a ton of hype around it at the moment, and in my (obviously biased) opinion the image quality of Indigo totally smashes it ;) Arnold always does a great job, but it's difficult to compete with raw GPU power...

Re: RHINO FOR MAC SUPPORT Maxwell

I have to wonder: do people post Indigo news on eg. Maxwell and Octane forums? Like, what's the benefit here for Indigo users? :oops:

Re: Help with difficult indoor lighting

For the future I'd consider a couple of GTX 1070's - the GPU renderer eats high res and SS for breakfast. And no box noise -> helps tremendously when denoising. :) From my POV this is the big deal. For animations you'll maybe want to do some denoising, and unfortunately the boxnoise basically makes...

Re: MAC OS SIERRA AND GPU RENDERING

Clearly GPU-ness alone is not enough, it certainly doesn't help them to beat normal desktop CPUs :P

It's true that a Chaotica update is overdue, I hope to do a dev update about it soon.

Re: IndigoBench - Indigo CPU and GPU benchmark

Games will definitely utilise a GPU more than specialised GPGPU applications, since they "light up" many more transistors: GPUs have dedicated hardware for stuff like texture filtering and compression, HDR blending and multisampling AA, hierarchical z-buffer, ...
