The ugly aspect clearly originates from you because you come off as highly caustic, bitter and resentful towards how Indigo has been managed. The manner in which you talk to people and how you belittle Ono's efforts clearly shows you are out to rock the boat.

If you are not confident about where Indigo is heading, then maybe you need to step off the boat or just stick to PM'ing people and save the rest of us from your incessant negativity.

@neepneep

CTZn went too far today and got his ear chewed
I am actually a nice guy you know :wink: but there are limits to my patience for silly nonsense.
FYI I have sent an email to Ono about the matters I asked about above.
Hopefully it gets sorted.

have a nice week BF

We all have limits when it comes to silly nonsense and that, my friend, is why you are copping flack... :roll:

Thats a pretty cool effect. How long to render the frames cos it looks reasonably flicker free

Each frame took about 7 minutes, there are 120 frames. i added a smoothing filter to reduce noise.

Nice.

You could perhaps have less compression artifacts showing it on vimeo, not sure.

It's quite difficult to judge if it's stream compression, flicker, or DOF noise.

Also, blendigo 1.1.18 works fine for me, just still doesn't understand how mat previews work, cant get any ...

Sorry for posting on topic, and disturbing the flame that just started! :lol:

@SmartDen. I just upgraded to 1.1.18 (from 1.1.14) using the win32 installer. All works fine, but every time I start blendigo it complains that indigo path is not set. After setting it up is OK until next Blender start. Curious thing is that IndigoWrapper.conf points correctly (located on C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\.blender\scripts\bpydata\ on my machine).

Maybe noone uses dupligroups in Blender, and so nobody noticed that they don't work in Blendigo anymore. The objects that belong to the group are not exported. That used to work in older version, although this was about 1,5 years ago. Perhaps that was in 1.0.9 or even older (0.9)?

If you want Blender to remember your Indigo path then forget about setting up the indigowrapper.conf, instead start a blank scene, open Blendigo and set the Indigo path in the system tab, then press CTRL-U ----> This will save the setting as your preference and remember it into the future.

Ok, I'll try this. From this initial post it wasnt'n clear enough. So, this is what "(System)" note is all about. Thanks a lot!

I think I found a little bug in blendigo 1.1.18. Don't know if it carries through to 2.0.6. I was testing displacement and noticed that using displacement with a specular material doesn't have the same result as with other material types. I found that the diplacement amount could not be adjusted with the 'B' parameter as other materials allow. I looked at the IGS and noticed that for the specular material the whole texture component is defined twice. The first texture's 'B' has a value of 1, and the second contains the value I entered from blender. It appears that the first texture definition causes the second to be bypassed. Code and result below:

Code: Select all

	<material>
		<name>disporen</name>
		<oren_nayar>
			<sigma><constant>0.200000</constant></sigma>
			<texture>
				<path>C:\...\5.jpg</path>
				<exponent>2.200000</exponent>
				<uv_set>screw</uv_set>
				<b>0.04</b>
			</texture>
			<albedo>
				<constant><rgb>
					<rgb>0.8 0.8 0.8</rgb>
					<gamma>2.2</gamma>
				</rgb></constant>
			</albedo>
			<displacement>
				<texture>
					<texture_index>0</texture_index>
				</texture>
			</displacement>		</oren_nayar>
	</material>


	<medium>
		<name>dispec</name>
		<precedence>10</precedence>
		<basic>
			<ior>1.60838</ior>
			<cauchy_b_coeff>0</cauchy_b_coeff>
			<absorption_coefficient_spectrum>
				<rgb>
					<rgb>0.121205 0.206049 0.266651</rgb>
					<gamma>2.2</gamma>
				</rgb>
			</absorption_coefficient_spectrum>
		</basic>

	<material>

				<exponent>2.200000</exponent>
				<uv_set>screw</uv_set>
				<b>0.04</b>
