Rezca, with my scene it works fine. :) I use Maxigo exporter 3.0.7 with the ready presets materials... The image is on a tiny box with the glass/SSS preset for glass... I think it could be the fresnel lens because my is from a drawing from interenet... But I dont understand why is yours mirrored...

Hmmm....

Well I set up my projector model as closely as I could from the diagram you had shared earlier, but as long as I had the 'fresnel lens' mesh in no light would ever come out no matter how strong the emitter.

On the image box, I applied a default glass material and one with absorption, with the absorption layer using the image I supplied.
The lens and fresnel lens both used a default glass material.


I'm still quite new to Indigo materials and lights, but I'm making some progress... Just not enough to produce interesting and complex effects ^^;

Hello, here is my set up. I use black frame around the image plane and the interior is black too - dont know if this helps :) And your fresnel looks a bit different from the one I use... Wish you good luck and happy holidays to all!

a pure black interior would improve performance by killing rays that do not participate to the targeted effect

A "wet asphalt" (and wait for the cloudy sky...). Seems the scene of the contest (?).

Thanks for the comments! I allready put two images on the contest - I'll try this for the 3rd.
Yonosoy, thanks for the suggestion. Wet asphalt will be great :)

Hi Guys,

I have a question. I gave thin-glass property for my windows. but the sun is not coming through.

And also my rendering picture looks the same even if i rendering it for 5h

What is the solution for that?


Thanks for the answers! ;)

Are you using GPU rendering?

Simply don't use it!!1!
In the next beta release we hopfully will get ArchGlass that would be exactly what you are needing here.
Until then use proper specular based glass on a box volume for windows with some exit portals behind it..
Glass Aceleration in the render settings can help here too!

I installed the CUDA toolkit in my computer, and also clicked on the GPU rendering in Indigo. But it seems thats not working for me. Maybe need a few more step to set-up the GPU rendering mode, but i didn't find any proper instructions (for dummies) to set it up :P

Don't use CUDA, but OpenCL with the latest drivers, also check my post above... the problem is your glass material!

Arnooo, I think (by the fact that you are trying to use GPU acceleration) that you are probably using Path Tracing as your render setting. From memory I don't think direct light through the thin glass works with Path Tracing... Try changing to BiDir with MLT.
