I'm thrilled to participate in this contest, and to show what Indigo has become capable of since the previous release. The new features introduced in Indigo v. 3.6 are immensely helpful in the automotive visualisation field, which made me decide to focus on just that. The render time was about 20 hours/image on my old C2D, which was hardly enough, but I hope you like them anyway:

The HDRI render was made to really show off the power of the new shadow catcher pass. It allows the user to seamlessly integrate a 3D object into any 2D image with realistic results. It's also very flexible - a separate pass for the shadows gives you the possibility to tweak the shadow to perfection in PS. Other new features used in this render are the new foreground alpha rendering option, allowing PNG export of semi transparent windows, and coating materials for the car paint.

Raw Indigo output (car + shadows):

In the studio shot of the full car, my main goal was to showcase the hidden lights feature, allowing light placement that wouldn't be possible in a real studio. I also used the shadow and alpha passes, making it easy to create a perfectly smooth studio backdrop in a post production software.

Raw Indigo output:

Blender scene (showing the hidden lights):

With the headlight closeup, I tried to spotlight my car paint that was made using the new coating material option. It's a great new feature that makes creating and tweaking layered car paints like this a piece of cake.

Raw render:

I've learnt a lot from taking part in this contest. Hope you enjoy what I managed to do - and good luck to all other contestants!

Here is my entry.

Working as an architect, the most important improvement of Indigo 3.6 are the new compositing features, shadow-catcher and alpha output. Despite of this, I did not choose an architectural scene, but a nature scene, because I also wanted to test the new double-sided thin material.

For my scene I took a photo in our garden, just some planks on our terrace. At the same time, I made seven shots with my tripod and a multirow-head to create a 360° hdri panorama. Using SkIndigo, I added this panorama as environment map + sun for lighting my scene.

Rendertime was about 6 hours with an i7-3770k, render method bidirectional with MLT. Postprocess was used to adjust colors, exposure, saturation, and slightly corrections of shadows.

I hope you enjoy my work and good luck to all!

And here is my second and third entry for this competition.

Again I used the new compositing features, shadow-catcher and alpha output. For some parts of the model I tried the new coating material. Backplates and HDRIs are from Dosch. The model I found at Turbosquid, it is a remake of the bubbleship from the movie "Oblivion" (really like this movie and its design).

Postprocess was used to adjust colors, exposure, saturation, and slightly corrections of shadows.

I'm looking forward for the judge of the jury!
Cheers, Lars

Hello,

I love Indigo :) I like the beautifull mountain I was waching before on greetingcards. And I want to apologise for the different scenes!

Hey,
here is my entry for the competition. :)
I used the double sided thin material for the leaves of the abstract "bioluminescent" tree.

Hello,

The Indigo is the best render! !Cheer!!
I hope the next version will give a shadow receiver function for WYSWYG,not a shadow layer. ^0^
So we can work inside the C4D.

Best wishes

The only thing I really use Indigo for is Archviz, so by far and away the new features that have been most useful to me personally have been the Material ID & Depth passes.

The depth pass allows me to apply DOF in post production to whatever focal length and strength I want. This has saved a lot of trial and error renders!

The Material ID allows me to accurately pick out individual materials in post production quickly & easily, giving me the confidence that changes made will look good. Previously if one tricky material turned out unexpectedly, a re-render was often required.

Glare Team keep up the great work!

Good luck everyone!

Unfortunately I had to skip further work on this competition because my Workstation crashed,
so I concentrated on PostPro and here's what i got ;)
Hope you like it though.

Best regards and good look to all competitors!

No post. Camera FCICD.

Thanks and great you all...
