Indigo 3.4 Stable released

Post by lycium » Tue Nov 06, 2012 4:56 am

Dear forum users,

Glare Technologies is pleased to announce the release of Indigo 3.4 Stable!

We'll be running a 25% to 33% off sale until the 23rd of November, during which Indigo Renderer will be priced at only €445 (normally €595), and Indigo RT only €99 (normally €145).

Upgrades from Indigo RT to the full Indigo Renderer will also be discounted, at only €345.


Indigo 3.4 brings several major new features to the visualisation professional's toolkit, including the ability to render with section planes and orthographic cameras. Performance and convergence speed is greatly improved, IES support has been overhauled, and a brand new native plugin for 3ds Max is included in this high-powered update!

Was wondering if Yves has also been working on new features to add to Indigo for Cinema. ;)

What new features would that be?
Everything you can do with Indigo is implemented in Indigo for C4D.

There's a lot into it, but we can always praise for more. For example (a) Indigo supports scientific notation and Indigo for Cinema doesn't, it wouldn't be much of a problem if cinema own numerical system wasn't a bit limited. (b) although Environment Map can be set it isn't shown so one cannot mix it with the scene. (a)&(b) had been minimized from the moment one could tweak it on Indigo Renderer side, still an obvious place for improvement. (c) Linking to external materials, sometimes you simply can't import materials (parametric materials), and in some cases (blended materials) one can have tons of blended materials just for the sake of one material being applied, which leads me to (d), a layered materials system which allows one to take the full advantage of it without the mess (that goes to Indigo too BTW). (e) Ease the process of export which can be the most time consuming of them all, whether through a solution such as Fire (Fast Interactive Rendering) from Maxwell or through efficient exporting, for example one could have an option where one wouldn't need to export the complete scene again and again, one could just export the updates to materials, cameras, etc... exporting multiple cameras where possible. (f) Some external shaders plugins (such as Tools4D excelent texture remmaping kit, or Jack's SurfaceSpread one) works out of the box with other renderers, without their authors having to write specifically to them, so a new plugin arrives and they can take advantage from the get go.

These are some, but I bet there are more that could help Indigo for Cinema being better.

But there are still bugs and workflow features etc. that would enhance the Cindigo experience even more!

I have a 158 lines long textfile with ToDo Stuff only for Cindigo that I gave to fused.

Cindigo is a awesome exporter and great to work with, but there is still stuff missing not working or solved suboptimal.
