[REQ] light level / radiance

Post by Juju » Wed Sep 23, 2015 7:27 pm

I'm hoping this could be done without too much fuss.

Currently Indigo doesn't do light level / radiance readings / output, so this has to be done using some other software (Indigo remains rendering solution of choice).

In the present IES files have to be loaded/linked using skIndigo (or whatever other exporter you use) for rendering and again the same in the other software (eg. LightUp) for lighting level / radiance readings. Will it be possible to set these sources up on a separate layer (linking the IES files with an extension like GOSU) and have skIndigo read the IES files this way?

I suppose the other option is to have lighting level / radiance readings output from Indigo.

Big bump from the grave. Any feedback here? I was considering going to Thea, that has this already built-in (and seems to be a decent enough rendering software), but decided to wait and see what develops with Indigo.

Doing lighting analysis (radiance / illumination) is a real PITA when you need to set it up again in another software, especially when you need to do changes.

Ahem *cough cough*
This is what we're talking about...
Anybody from the dev team? No interest in pursuing this at all? Some feedback would be great...

Hi Juju,
THis would be cool to add, we just have a lot of stuff to do right now.
Maybe after 4.0 is done.

Hi Ono, thanks for the reply.

Understandably so, are we talking version 4.2-ish or version 5plus-ish.

I don't suppose Glare has a roadmap of sorts for Indigo?

Could be integrated as a rendering pass/channel.

Imagine what my first thought was after I saw the version 4 stable release notice in my e-mail?!

Pretty please?
