C4D Indigo Exporter 0.56.7

Post by BlackLizard » Mon Aug 21, 2006 10:05 am

Hi all,
sorry for being away for so long, I guess this will happen again 'cause I'm really full of work (no holidays this year).
Well, here is a new version that should be compatible with last 0.6 test 1 changes for background element.
Since just an element can be used this is the order:
1- If env maps are used they take precedence (i.e. file name in config tag)
2- If a sun is defined skylight is used
3- If no env maps and no sun then background is used (currently cannot disable it)

http://www.bytejuggler.com/CinemaPlugin ... 0.59.7.zip

Not really tested but I couldn't let the chance to work on the exporter slip away :)

As I said I don't know how much time I'll be able to dedicate in the future so if someone wants to help development please drop me an email (see readme.txt for address).

Byez and take care,
BL

Hi BlackLizard,

good to see, that you´re back again! :D

Thank you for the update and the explanation of the situation.
Unfortunately I´m not able to help you with the development in this way but I hope we´ll find someone who is.

Hey BL.... thank you very much for this great Exporter!!!

I used it while testing some Indigo Light settings & stuff, and found two little bugs:

1)
If you duplicate a Mesh Light in Cinema, that has the Light Tag,
the Settings always jumps back to "peak Style" but Type stays RGB or Black Body...
The good news is, that your Exporter still exports it the way the duplication Source is.
(All other options in the Indigo Tags seem to stay normal, after duplication!)

Image

**EDIT**
This also happens if you duplicate the Light Tag by holding CTRL and draging the Tag to another Object!

2)
If you export a Scene without using the "Render Configuration" Tag,
your Exporter just writes this background Information to the XML:

Code: Select all

<background>
   <radiance>0.0 0.2 0.2</radiance>
</background>
Two Ideas for the next release would be a default black Background color,
and perhapes a line of code in The XML to get the version Number
of the Exporter it was created with...

I know you are very busy dude, but I just want tell this stuff before I forget it :wink:

Hi Everybody...

I found another Bug :(

It Seems the Exporter Exports "Area lights" (Flächen Lichter)
even if you havn't taged them with an "Light Tag" for export.
By doing this it doesn't export it the right way, but only exports a
rectanglelight even if you got other options activated in C4D...

Hereis a small C4D example File to get the point.

Mein C4D stürzt ab wenn ich die Scene versuche zu laden ??! Das selbe passiert wenn ich in den Material Helfer Tag ein Material lade. Ich muss also immer die Materialien in der XML Datei editieren, was nicht gerade Zeit sparend ist. Für eine Problemlösung wer ich sehr dankbar.

Hey Camox...

I'm working with C4D 9.6...
If you use 9.6 too, please check the ReadMe of the Exporter:
- If using C4D 9.5+ delete the IndigoExporter.cdl file in the plugin dir and rename IndigoExporter9521.cd_ to IndigoExporter9521.cdl
P.S.
Büdde imma brav in englisch, dann können sich viel mehr Leute beteiligen :wink:

He he... yeah iOnStallion, I'm from Germany... or to be more specific:

"Ich bin ein Hamburger Jung und ich komm voll in Schwung,
Wenn ich huepf' und spring und von Hamburg sing."


My english isn't this good, but its understandable (at last I hope so :lol:)

P.S.
Hey Camox, did the change of the .cdl file the magic, or do you still got Problems with the Exporter?
