Blendigo for Indigo 3.4 stable

Post by OnoSendai » Tue Nov 06, 2012 2:15 am

Blendigo (Indigo for Blender) for Indigo 3.4 stable


ALL PLATFORMS: http://www.indigorenderer.com/dist/expo ... .4.9.4.zip

WINDOWS INSTALLER: http://www.indigorenderer.com/dist/expo ... taller.exe


This exporter requires Blender version 2.64 or newer.

It also requires Indigo 3.4.7 or newer to be installed. The latest Indigo Renderer build is recommended. Get it from http://www.indigorenderer.com/downloads

MANUAL INSTALLATION

Unzip the archive. Move the extracted indigo folder into your Blender addons folder.
You should end up with <blender scripts>/addons/indigo/

Run Blender 2.6, go into User Preferences/Addons, and find the Render section. Locate the Blendigo entry
and enable the addon by clicking the little checkbox on the right.

INSTALLATION VIA BLENDER

Run Blender 2.6, go into User Preferences/Addons. Click the "Install Addon" button and choose the blendigo-2.5-3.2.12.0.zip file. The addon will be installed and shown to you, ready for activation.

If you are upgrading, be sure to choose the "Overwrite" option when selecting the .zip file.

You can easily check the installed version in the Addons panel. After upgrading/replacing I would strongly recommend restarting blender.


KNOWN BUGS
When motion blur is enabled, objects with keyframes whose parents also have keyframes may have incorrect transformations in Indigo.
The workaround for this is to disable motion blur for the scene. This can be disabled by unchecking the 'Motion Blur' checkbox in the Render settings tab in Blender, in the 'Indigo Render Engine Settings' section.
