Basically, yes :)
Thanks fused. Exscuse me! I saw your answer in this moment...so I have Xcode (because I want to program for iphone) and I can compile a .dylib using Xcode. But I don't know how to do that :( And I don't know how to know the code of the plugin for windows! How do you do the mac version of cindigo?

@fused:
Does Cindigo 2.2 Stable still work with the shortly released Indigo 2.4.3?
Or do we have to wait for an update?

If it works (partly?) what do we have to pay attention?

Kind regards,
Tom

AFAIK there's no major changes nor any backward compatible problems

2.4.3 works fine so far.
Some new features that "need" integration into Cindigo are:

Code: Select all

- starting Indigo with network manager on export
- Adding wait_for_slave_frames_on_stop option to renderer_settings
- -thread_priority now changes whole process priority, so cindigo workaround isn't needed anymore
- control for verbose flag to control some output
- control for not caching kdtree to disk if less than N triangles

Code: Select all

- animation export for mac
- the ability to save both IGI and IGS into the same defined output folder
Cheers, David

I think this is a bug?

A problem occurred with the scene:
SceneLoaderExcep: Error while parsing DiffuseTransmitter material: ComplexIORExcep: ComplexIORDataSetExcep: Failed to open file 'G:\Renderers\INDIGO v2\nkdata/nkdata/Au.nk' for reading. (In element 'phong', around line 106, column 9)
Indigo version: Indigo Renderer v2.4.3, Windows 32-bit Release

this is what I see in the saved scene file
removing one of the "nkdata" fixed it

<material>
<name>particles_mid3</name>
<phong>
<nk_data>nkdata/nkdata/Au.nk</nk_data>
<ior>1.400000</ior>
<diffuse_albedo>

although it might be a bug in the material itself. I downloaded it from the database. Or a Cindigo translation bug


also when importing these packed IGM files that have multiple entries of blends and what not, do I have to assign all the parts of the material to the object or just the base material item?

just the root material. I really want to rewrite the indigo material in c4d (to make blending easier/to get rid of the mess of blend materials) but I dont really have the time for it :(

Also Cindigo doesn't seem to be exporting the tone mapping settings.

There is no entry of it in the scene file, even though you can set it in the plugin


edit - might be a user error, since I rendered with the perspective view and not camera selected....

Everytime I try to put this material on an object and export/render it, Cindigo crashes :(

http://www.indigorenderer.com/materials/materials/327

it makes heavy use of ISL and displacement etc
It even crashes if the material is not applied to an object

I discovered another issue

if I set the viewport to the editor camera and export the scene out to render Indigo complains about focus distance being at zero, even though autofocus is turned on

<focus_distance>0.000000</focus_distance>

when I switch back to the real scene camera and export, it's fine since there is a value there.

when autofocus is turned on, indigo determines the distance to the closest object, regardless of what is set in the xml.

does focus distance 0 give you an error? if not i'll just ignore it :lol: ^^
