right click the icon-> properties then change the path to: C:\Program Files\Indigo Renderer\indigo.exe

edit: sorry, missed the 'mac os x' bit :oops:

Serious: No problems here on OS X 10.5 + Indigo 2.2.12.
Maybe you could download it again?
Cheers, David

Ah, okay... then take a look at blendigo.
It should ask you of your default Indigo installation path; if it doesn't, try to remove blendigo, start blender, quit blender, install blendigo again and restart blender.

... that's how it works with Cindigo when having this issue... well, if. :mrgreen:
Cheers, David

no, it doesn't. it should use the paths defined by the installer and stored in a file that Blendigo reads.

This is indeed a very odd issue - and I feel of limited use because I do not own a Mac that I can run Indigo on and I don't know how the executables are named or organized.

Ben ?

I'm trying currently to get my hands on a Mac. My most urgent task is to make Blendigo work properly on OSX.

Giorgio,

Not sure which version of Indigo you have installed on your mac. 2.2 stable is actually the same as 2.2.12. In the Blender section of the Forum dougal2 states that Blendigo 2.2 stable for MacOS is not out since it has problems, however for the other OS its equivalent to Blendigo 2.2.11-d, which BTW works flawlessly on my iMac. I had to correct the my path in the location file though to get it to work. Let me explain.

When you press the render button in Blendigo it uses a path to the Indigo executable stored in this file:

/Users/"your user name"/.indigo/location

In my case that file contains one line:
/Applications/Indigo.app

Check out what it contains in your case and correct if necessary. That should help, assuming that when you click on the Indigo application icon in the Applications directory in the Finder this really starts Indigo :wink:

Let us know if that works and if you need further assistance.

Hi ,

I have downloaded the installer that is right now in the downloads page , latest stable 2.2.12 for mac os.

NO , my indigo was installed ( by the installer ) in the applications folder :

Macintosh HD / Applications



So you say 2.2.12 is not ready for mac os , but , where is the 2.2 download i just can find it ?


Thanx !

You've answered your own question. There is no 2.2 stable release for Mac OSX because it doesn't work!

Please wait, I'm working on fixing it.

To be honest, I'm not sure which of the previous versions worked and which didn't.

I've got access to OSX today, so hopefully I can get you something to test by the end of the day.
