Good Document

Post by airxart » Mon Dec 03, 2007 5:37 am

I have uploaded this pdf & use the tips.
Like the terminal entries for starting indigo to run an indigo file.
I had not tried it yet before this.
I bounce back & forth from a windows box to my ubuntu box.
This tutorial is a great addition to my lack of knowledge with linux.
Thanks, Joe Giampaoli
:D

ubuntu logo render

Render in ubuntu using wine to run indigo 1.0.4
12 hours+

Question does your timer ever stop working ?
It stopped recording the time after about 2 hour, but the renderer was still working.
I haven't tried It again yet.
I'll keep you posted.

Looking Nice airxart!

Yes, the scrollinglog text inside the GUI stops after a certain amount of lines actually, its not based on time. Happens only on linux. If you run indigo in console mode the lines in the log will run forever along with the render.....

NOTE: I will update the tutorial soon, I found that extremely large or complex scenes DO KILL indigo if launched in GUI mode, but in console mode they will run happily.

The guide worked great, except for the part with the ".blender" folder. On my system that was a hidden folder so I had to "show hidden files (ctrl+h)." I haven't done the launcher for indigo (how would you do a launcher for blender?) and I didn't try resuming/pausing renders.

Create launcher for blender pointing to /home/USER/.blender/blender

resuming will work but you must tell exporter to write the .igi file along with the .png
so it can resume

It would be nice if someone came up with a tutorial about how to install WINE for the Intel version of OSX.

I needed to configure my linux box to run win .exe files directly (explained here http://www.linux.com/articles/56032) to run renders directly from exporter.

Also number of threads should be increased manually in "System" tab in Blendigo exporter, autodetection does not work for me with wine.

Maybe this should me mentioned in tutorial? ;-)
