on a side note, I noticed that the emission settings for environment maps are missing a couple of the options (you can only choose luminance and luminous emittance) while other emission settings include luminous flux and intensity. is there a reason for that?
The only options for the env map are the ones that make sense for an environment map. For example luminous flux doesn't make sense since it depends on the 'size' of the environment.

I for one should have guessed this out.

Hi, I get the following error when I want to open the attached material file:

Code: Select all

Error: Failed to parse material: Error while parsing blend material: No such material defined 'MixAuZnSe'. (In element 'blend', around line 52, column 9)
I didnt edited the xml by hand. I was just working with materials, in the end I saved the material as a file, and after some hours I wanted to rework on this again and got the error above.

materials but the root (final) one were saved in inverse order it seems.

I've gotten this a couple of times, especially when having multiple blends within one material (blend material which has a blend material as one of its sub-materials).

Could we get that material graph back, as before in the Indigo material editor? That made it very easy to keep track of your material setup. Nodes would be even handier :)

+1

Wouldn't it be smarter to preload the xml file with its material objects and then patch them together, so the order of materials inside the xml file doesnt matter?

cheers

Hi Glare :)

I'm getting a peculiar bug trying to use network rendering in OS X environment. I'm using the trial to do this. This is the setup:

Two identical iMac sandy bridge i7 2.7Ghz with 4GB ram, SSD and ATI Radeon HD 6970M 2Gb VRAM.
Rendering an animation created in sketchup via Skindigo's Scene Tab animation method. The .igq file and individual .igs files create properly. The que loads properly (34 frames). The first frame fires up properly and starts rendering with the slave, hitting around 2000k samples/s. Upon reaching the specified SPP (300 in this case) the next frame starts, however it renders on the master only (at half the s/s). The slave gives the following error:
Waiting for a master.
Attempting to connect to master at 192.168.1.171:7777...
Connected to master.
Connection Exception: write failed. Error code == [unknown: errno=32]
Connection to master terminated.
When the render of this frame completes on the master alone, the next frame is again rendered with the slave without a hitch. So in short: Every other frame does not render on the slave. GPU (OpenCL) is on.

Any ideas? Let me know if you need more information.

Hi Solarray,
Thanks for the report!
This should be fixed in the next release.

At the moment the new Background plate overlay overlays the rendering. The idea is rather to have a image behind the rendering, isn't it?! Opacity in that case seems quite obsolete...

How big is a chance to get Shadow catcher integrated as a object property only and not a separate render mode?
That would simplify usability a lot!

How about a material option to include specular materials into transparency calculation but leaving reflections?
By that you could for example map a BG also behind car windows, and interiors with windows and background manipulation would keep their reflections.

The two last features would bring alpha rendering and composing capabilities of Indigo a big leap forward, since cars and interiors are mostly common to get such BG composing :)

Just realized you'd probably want the render log from the master as well.. seems the problem is here:

On a successful frame, the DNS Lookup still fails but the "ListenerThread" line is not there and slave connects.
