SkIndigo 3.6.19 (beta)

Post by OnoSendai » Fri Aug 16, 2013 5:21 am

Hello,

This is a beta release and it has not been tested very much. You need Indigo 3.6.0 or greater to use this version.

To Install:
1) Download RBZ file from link below
2) In SketchUp, go to Window->Preferences->Extensions
3) Uncheck the SkIndigo checkbox, press OK, restart SketchUp
4) In SketchUp, go to Window->Preferences->Extensions->Install Extension
5) Select the RBZ file you downloaded
6) Check SkIndigo again.

NOTE: this elaborate process is to make sure the asset files get updated properly, which doesn't work if the extension is enabled.

Some features are WIP. You can now create custom preview scenes by selecting 'New.." from the preview scene dropdown list. You just need to have a material in your scene named 'previewmaterial'. There is no way yet to delete a custom preview scene. They are stored here:

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Indigo Renderer\su_preview_scenes

The 1m scale preview scene is not working fully yet. You can try it out but it does not scale displacement properly yet (it works with absorption and media settings though).

Material loading of the new material types also does not work yet.

Changelog:

#Version 3.6.19

#Fixed material preset dialog being not scrollable.
#Made material preview scenes using SSF1, single dir QMC PT instead of bidir mlt, for faster and better previews.
#Fixed thumbnails in online MatDB search for recent materials.
#Fixed XML escaping problem with emitters, resulting in invalid scenes in some cases.
#Increased frequency of updating some material preview scene images.

Really? :shock: Which ones didn't update? the HTML dialogs?

This might be a serious issue that I should notify the SketchUp team about.

I noticed that the material preview files (IMPmatdb.igs etc..) weren't updating.
