Hi. I just discovered this days the Indigo renderer and wanted to test how it is working with Blender but unfortunately I don't have the Indigo as render option after installing Blendigo add-on for Blender.

I tried the blendigo-3.8.25.0 and also blendigo-3.8.25.1 and I have the same result.

Can you explain in steps how you tried to install the Blender exporter?

Just downloaded the add-ons from this forum:

https://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/vi ... =8&t=14322

I have already installed the IndigoRT and is working.

I opened Blender 2.79 and on the Add-ons I pressed "Install Add-on from file..." and pointed to the location of the add-on.
After that I activated the addon, Save user settings but into the Render engines don't appear the Indigo renderer as an option.

I tried to install in two different systems. At work on a Windows10 machine and at home on MacOS 10.12.6 and I have the same result.

I had some time today to do more testing and seems that with the official Blender 2.79 it is working.

It is not working with the daily builds from Blender Buildbot.

Seems that the daily builds are using now the newest Python 3.6.2.

It is possible to update Blendigo to the newest Python?

Sorry, i forgot if i mentioned it already:
Just a heads up about incoming addons breakages and api changes and new rules!

2.79 release is fairly safe from these changes.

A new change restricts the use of duplicate class names.
Put simple, if you use a duplicated class name your addon will fail activation.
This includes addons preferences and any other class name duplicates.
BF task here: https://developer.blender.org/T52564

"the use of duplicate class names has been restricted, we plan to, after 2.79 release, to address these issues.
please note these issues will not be in 2.79 release but are in nightly builds.
it's good to be aware of this issue, i'm trying to keep addons repo clean for 2.79 release, then come in and fix all the issues in nightly, whilst not polluting addons master with fixes that might be conflicting with release."

More information will follow.
