Indigo for macOS's OpenCL-based GPU engine provides industry-leading performance on Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. With a single modern GPU, it's approximately 10x faster than before. Simply add more GPUs and get the horsepower to quickly render incredible 4K images and animations.
A dark UI mode. Interactive material previews and light layer thumbnails. RGB color curves and snappy trackball navigation. These are just some of the new features making Indigo Render for Mac the most streamlined and enjoyable version yet.
It lets you edit your lighting by changing colors, temperature, and brightness of your light sources - without re-rendering. Create many variants, such as day/night versions, from the same image. Particularly impressive are the picture-perfect Depth of Field and "bokeh" rendering, due to realistic camera apertures.
Aperture diffraction is an advanced rendering effect that involves simulating the interfering light waves striking the camera, to produce familiar effects such as rainbow streaks around small light sources.
Indigo 3D features highly realistic, physically-based materials that interact naturally with the light sources in your scene to deliver photo-realistic rendering results.
The app features an advanced sun & sky system based on highly accurate atmospheric simulation. Unlike the classical sun & sky model which breaks down when the Sun is at low elevation, the new model remains true to life.
It has built-in animation and renders queue support which, together with network rendering and GPU acceleration, allows you to use all the computers on your network to render an animation or set of images easily and rapidly.
All features work seamlessly with network rendering, which means you can harness the full power of your network to accelerate realtime editing and final rendering.
It supports section planes, a powerful visualization tool that lets you slice away sections of a model or scene to show an interior view. This is achieved in such a way that the scene data isn't actually modified, allowing for quick and painless cut-away imaging with one or more section planes, which can easily be adjusted or disabled. Section planes enjoy broad support in modeling applications, including SketchUp, Blender, Cinema 4D and Revit.
