Post by fused » Mon Apr 20, 2009 10:54 am

Cindigo 1.1.18 - stable RC4
for Indigo 1.1.18


download exporter:
Pc Version
Mac Version - soon

The PC version contains plugins for R10(32 and 64 bit) and R9(32 bit). R9 users will have to rename the "cindigo.cdl_R9" to "cindigo.cdl".
Make sure you have the newest version of quicktime installed! Previews will not work with the 64 bit version bacause of the lack of 64 bit quicktime.

Good beginner tutorials can be found here (german and english, a bit outdated), a video tutorial for beginners here
The Cindigo Blog

Hi fused! thank you very much for the release! i finally found the time to download and play a bit with it, and it works fine!

I found a bug, related to the label of the wine bottle: the second pic shows a cinema AR-render, and that's how the label should be. The first pic is an Indigo one (1.16), and although i unckecked the 'tile' option in C4D, the label texture gets repeated in the y-axis, covering the whole area of the selection. The texture 'offset x and y' of cinema doesn't work, either..


ciao!!

On material helper when emission is chosen you can set the number for the layer of the given light
