The rendering quality is awesome, and it's so fast than I can set up scene lighting with our technical art director about seven times faster than with our other render engine
Mateusz Sroka, Platige Image
Indigo is usually my go-to renderer: it handles massive scenes very well. It loads fast, it's reliable, doesn't crash and produces beautiful results
Tom Svilans, architect
"We simply love the lighting and the realistic look. Without the need of tweaking and faking light situations or GI render settings, Indigo simply renders it as it is... and so we can fully concentrate on color grading and subtle post production. Almost like you would do it with real filmed footage."
- David Gudelius, Senior CGI Artist READ MORE
"... 35K objects, 201 million polygons, 804 light sources and hundreds of materials. Indigo crunched through this data without issues and allowed a workflow with quick previews and great output quality without tweaking 1001 settings like in some other renderers. With this reliability I could focus on content creation and tweaking material in the project."
