Great! Do the 3 final pics have to be picures of the same scene, or can I for example render one studio render, and one environment render?

Would be nice to have an exhaustive list of what the new features are :D:D:D:D

..some of us actually use always the latest up-to-date beta releases, and I frankly couldn't figure out by myself what feature was 3.0.xxx and what was 2.0.xxx...

Hi Oscar,

any renderings you like.

Hey Pibuz,

everything that is on the 3.6 release page and of course any new significant feature you can find in the 3.6.x changelog (you can find it in "changelog.txt" in the Indigo directory).

I'll try to compile a list as well :)

Sounds not fair if you compare full with RT renders regarding new features because a lot of them are not activated in the RT version ...

Hi cotty,

you can use the trial version of Indigo Renderer and we will not judge trial submissions differently than others because of watermarks on the images (or because of the resolution).

We could possibly also help with some final renderings, if the scene isn't too large or difficult to render.

Here's a little something I've been working on, to show off the shadow catcher, alpha transparency feature, and coating materials. Planning to try to add some post pro smoke later on. C&C welcome.

Hi everyone,

To allow more people to enter the competition we have decided to extend the competition end to the 31st of January.

Sorry everyone who has submitted already, you get more time as well, of course.
