Plywood Chair

Post by Rich O Brien » Wed Jun 27, 2012 7:52 am

Hi,

Long time SketchUp user and new to Indigo. Still getting to grips with UI and dials and knobs but so far it's got a nice workflow with SketchUp.

Here's a quick test on a chair to get a feel for camera settings and IBL.

Very nice!
I would prefer another whitepoint an a more sophisticated lighting; mabe 3-point in addition to the IBL.

But great start, keep on it!
Cheers, David

uh oh.. rich using indigo.. watch out ;)

the chair looks sweet.. so do the textures.

i'd like to say 'you're really going to like indigo!' but then again, it's the only renderer i actually use besides messing around a bit with all the other ones..

good stuff.. looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks David. I'm really just getting to grips with it for now. The manual will need digesting first. The whole lighting system is still unknown territory.

@Jeff

I can't take credit for the chair it's one of Alvis' tuts/pdf that's for sale at SCF.

Hi Dale,

Watched them all. Very informative. Must say that Skindigo is very well put together.

Had a chance to play with emitters. But still trying to feel about the general workflow. Not digging the outcome but didn't look at the manual regards Tonemapping and Whitepoint yet.

Are there any Light Studios setups that can be deconstructed lying around here?

Do you need the light setups or the light itself? Maybe EXR environment will help you?
Here are some nice studio light exrs (hdrs):

Hi Cotty,

I was more looking to see actual studio models so I could see the lighting parameters. In that scene above it is lit by both .exr and emitters.

I was hoping somewhere here there might be some .skp lighting setups for studio shots. It's no big deal just wanted to do a bot of investigating is all.
