Hi Ono-Sendai :)

1:I think material must be stronger(For example: the metals can let we different color of free modification
)
2:plastic and metals can use the (compound) material, so the material will become stronger and free(For example:maxwell of material)
3:Revise light, I think to have no necessity so many light, having the in common use D55 D64 AN only.......
Actually we need more from light of custom different color
I think not need to exist the White Balance

There is one feature I would particularly like to see in the future and that is an "ALL OF THE ABOVE" option to be added to the poll. :D

The Secret of great textures is alpha map and shader! This is a must have for a render.

I think that, apart from SSS, aniostropy would be at the top of the list.

manitwo: I dont know about turning off caustics, Indigo is all about acurate (unbiased) light simulation. That would introduce bias and defeat Indigo's purpose, IMHO.

Want i want above all else would be SSS. I use 3 renderers: Blender internal, Yafray and Indigo because they are the easiest free renderers to use with Blender. But none of them has SSS and its something i miss terribly.

From my own experience, i see that most CG stills look CG because of two things mainly. First, the absence of what i like to call "random irregularities" like a random scratch on a surface, a tiny bit of rust on nails, etc. Things you always find in real life but that are almost impossible or too tidious to simulate in CGI. Second, the absence of SSS.

So many things need SSS in order to look realistic, without SSS they look fake or lifeless. Here is a short list of things i can think of that need SSS:

-Human skin
-Milk/cream
-Solid wax
-Cloth
-Paper
-Porcelain
-Plant leaves
-Plastics
-Dense fur
-Meat
-Fruits
-Foam
-Marble
-Pearls
-Etc.

So to summarize, me wants SSS :P
