Cool Ono! Does the Voroni shader work now?
No time to test it...

Bug: I can't continue a render from an igi if I'm on a pigs scene. Would like to be able to do that without unzipping the pigs. Thanks.

Nice release, I like the improved Alpha rendering A LOT! First tests are very promising...

I rendered the flaked paint a little bigger to see the effect:

The shader looks great, but is done by altering the thickness of the coating.
Actually a more realistic approach could be to set a (colored) box noise for the normal channel of the phong substrate.
Just an idea...

Sweet.
It actually does that already :)

For scenes with loads of instances, could there be an option to group objects that reference the same mesh in the UI? The list gets very long with 1 000 000 instances!

Also, any sample ISL code for mesh scattering available?

It seems Indigo isn't friend with the new Mac OS X 10.9.4 as it crashes every time saying it encountered the problem while using QtopenGL.

Did a test with 3.8.4 as it was working fine but it crashes as well.
Removing OpenGL preview is a bit better as it doesn't crash instantly but i can't even launch a render, it's crashing before i can do that ! :D

Perhaps a change in the way OpenGL is handled in 10.9.4 ?


Cheers,
Laurent aka Tartiflette. :)
