Cool. That will be a preferred solution then for people who don't want to spend a lot of money now and when they like it and have the hardware can upgrade to a package that supports network rendering.

Also, I stand corrected on the performance, but this is on Windows 7 64bit. I tried it first on XP64, but can definitely see it's faster on W7 64bit!

I stand very much corrected even, Indigo 3.0 is FAST! 2-3 times faster than 2.6.1.

Have had a quick play with v3.0 and all I can say is.....OMG!!! - on the fly changing of camera,materials,etc is soooo sweet. It feels faster as well.

Will do some proper playing with it later but what I have seen so far already deserves a big congratulations to the developers - nice work guys

Now! you need to update indigo's manual ... (screenshots are ooooooold)
and think to make it some official translations (german, french, italian, spanish...)





...professional!

One thing I've seen in 3.0 is that interior scenes lit by sunlight through a window (like Sketchup models of a house or building, but no glass in the window for simplicity) render a LOT faster using the GPU acceleration.

Comparing an i7 950, CPU rendering to GPU using a GTX285 (a fairly slow card, but it works), the GPU is 3 or 4 times faster. CUDA and OpenCL seem similar.

Also, on the same system, outdoor-type scenes are several times faster..maybe as much as 10 times faster...using GPU rendering.

Outdoor scenes are ridiculously quick with GPU pathtracing now. Even with a fair bit of glass and such, I've gotten full-rez renderings out in ~1 hour or less with Sun/Sky or Env Maps.

Hi all,
King Cong for this release ;-)
Is there a way to change the sun lighting or at less its direction inside indigo 3?
As a lightwave user, I do not have the chance to test indigo with my fav. software. Is there a chance for a plug-in that will allow lightwave users to work fully with indigo 3?

Best.
