Blender 3.2 (probably also 3.3)

One caveat, you will need to download blendigo from the repository, here the newest beta version of the plugin (code => download zip) will also need to run with administrator rights on some versions of windows

https://github.com/glaretechnologies/blendigo



I noticed that blendigo exports a shorter igm code and displays the white point more correctly. Before that I used c4d exporter for many years.

try using an external material library (yes this not user friendly, but I don't know any other way, blendigo developers don't prioritize making accessible UI) :mrgreen:

IndigoMatdb 4.6.0 - 4.6.2
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sroPvmfPhe
IndigoMatdb_m.jpg
as I have free time convert the old library of materials scale to blender (441 of 1184 materials done) within a month, the offline library will be filled with updated correct bump materials for blendigo



example left image rendered by double click with indigo preview or right image rendered with blender export IMPmatdb-corrected-base-bump
c4d_vs_blender.jpg


I also noticed a bug with transparent textures for the blend mode, for correct operation they must be converted to a black white image without an alpha channel

and there were crashes if you use 1 identical image for different layers bump / normal / roughness / matA / matB
solution = apply for each layer a copy of the image

Bug:

blend: texture.jpg
roughness: texture.jpg
bump: texture.jpg
normal: texture.jpg (looped 1 texture)
...


Ok:

blend: texture.jpg
roughness: texture_copy1.jpg
bump: texture_copy2.jpg
normal: texture_copy3.jpg
...

ps despite all these perversions, for me personally, indigo is the best engine for rendering hyper realistic art :D

nice commercial image turned out! :)

for a better result, you need to correctly export the mesh from Rhino, it should ideally have a square mesh and apply the Subdivision Surface modifier to the blender (example settings IMPmatdb.blend)

I didn’t fully understand how to get a square mesh from 3dm grabcad correctly, but I got an ideal mesh if I draw curves from scratch in Rhino by connecting from a loft and export to obj / fbx. I usually have triangular elements in my mesh when exporting, which has a rather negative effect on the result of rendering with indigo.
