Aren't they working on a material editor/preview/something already? Something like the stuff Kerkythea or Maxwell have? I think then it would be unneccessary, and I believe doing something with Cindigo would mean a lot of work.

Cool, didn't hear about that. A "real" material preview would be much nicer than a fake or half-baked one in cindigo, that's right ;)

If Somebody is interested, here my Material Preview Scene.
Its based on Indigo Primitives, and quite fast.
runing on my AMD x2 3.800 on thwo threads with ~85k muatations per second, a 15min rendering of a cr.nk is attached.

17) The Tile settings & texture Offset values for UVW mapped Textures don't get exported.

18 ) You sure know, but the normal length normalising, that Indigo does for you, totally sucks for big Meshes!!!!!
80MB normalize for ~26min using only one core :cry: My Hair2mesh2Indigo test are some freakin pain in the ass...

I just found a workaround for the normalization issue, and wanted you guys to know:

just reopen the exported OBJ Files in C4D and export them as Wavefront OBJ.
File size gets reduced to ~65% of the original filesize, and Indigo don't need to normalize anything.
(Tiling of UVW mapped Textures can be assigned then too :wink: )

BTW:
My request for multiple Blending of already blended materials is obsolete!
It already works in the current version... my fault :oops:

cool, does normal smoothing work?

if not, this is kind of senseless...

good question dude... :?:
I used this workaround for a hair2mesh carpet of 125000 small pyramids,
with disabled normal smoothing...
but it should be easy to test... reporting back in few minutes ;)

**EDIT**
I just checked....for the obj files exported by C4D using Wavefron OBJ doesn't work :cry:

Mh, just an idea. Maybe create a field in the texture tag where you can enter the XML code of a material? That way you have more flexibility if neccessary. Ok, you could edit that into the exported XML file, but you have to do that everytime you export, so it's a bit troublesome.

How about using the C4D OBJ export for all meshes that have normal smoothing disabled... 8)

sry for not updating the plugin, im pretty busy being ill with a very painful desease... (very very very painful)

ill probably dont have to work for the next two weeks (this and the next), maybe if i feel better next week ill have very much time for the exporter.
