this is only the way to get right focus with cindigo exporter > standalone app (changing focus object with keyframes, with indigo compositing tag > invisible object):

Now I've got your point!

Indeed focus object distance is not being exported correctly for animations when linked in the camera options... in R20 here.
Seems like values are not being read by Cindigo or, what I presume, written at render time properly by C4D.
Because it does work in IPR and VIPR.

But there's no need for keyframes: just use my little expresso thingy; it should work.
If you use a null object as focus target, there’s no need for hiding it via indigo compositing tag also.
Check it out!

why does cindigo exporter works only with absolute file pathes? can you add "exporting with relative pathes" function in igs/igq? i have to change in manual mode via notepad++ "c:\\" pathes on laptop to "\\networknameofmaschine\\" if i want to open igq/igs on home tower pc.

Yeah it should be optional.
In the meantime you could pack a PIGQ or PIGS from the standalone, take it to another machine and open it there.

Sorry, my Russian is a bit non-existent.
PIGS will compress the files. You tried to open indigo standalone, choose „Tools“, and then „Pack Indigo Scene/Queue/Material“?
What filesize do you get in result?

You made me curios.
So if you can’t transfer that pigs the only way remains editing the filepaths externally.
But as I said, it should definitely be an option.

i just change file pathes in Notepad++'s batch mode from "c:\\" to ""\\mylaptoppc\", then it's possible to open the igq scene via local network on my rtxs tower pc via Windows Explorer. but it's a trick, not a normal exporter's function.
