Found BUG in version 4.6.4 (not present in version 4.6.0) only in OpenCL mode

The background overwrites all (see attachments)

Not present in 4.6.4 (BiDir mode) or 4.6.0 (BiDir or OpenCL)

Looking at the number of samples/sec in the two cases, it's as if it doesn't render anything except the background....

The same Project (Indigo 4.6.4) sometimes causes "Out of resource" error on my videocard (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU).

Error: Exception while advancing OpenCL PT on device 'NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU': clEnqueueReadBuffer failed: CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES

Indigo 4.6.0 renders correctly

Not sure its the exporter or Indigo, but something seems horribly broken when GPU rendering on my system:

Another older scene renders fine, yet another one after the first "flash" of an image, it only renders the environment HDRI.

Thanks for this update, I'm glad Indigo is alive. Please keep that way, subscription based if needed.

@OnoSendai Awesome, thank you!
In the meantime the updated Blendigo also works with 4.6.9.

hi, very strange behaviour: the same scene, the same rig (5x 2070/2060s) but:

- cindigo 4.4.13 - 660 samples / sec
- indigo standalone 4.6.4 (and 4.6.0 too) - 550 samples / sec (exported from cinema 4d thru cindigo 4.4.13)

nvidia driver 517.48

gpu utilization of cindigo (left) and standalone (right), the same scene:

p.s. but it has the same samples/sec with single primary GPU - cindigo and standalone (2 gpus or more - different)

This is very encouraging. I am looking for the best alternative to Maxwell render and Indigo seems a good fit.
Some things that are important for me to switch or to add Indigo alongside Maxwell....
The most important for now is using NK/IOR files seems more difficult than I would like. I don't understand why there is not a standard file requester to load the data, or why adding additional data requires overwriting NK files in the application folder. More detailed documentation about this would be useful.
Clear signs of development activity is important and a big part of why I am looking for alternatives to Maxwell Render.

Unusable. Is this being checked for bugs before its put out there? Within 2 minutes of trying to use it, something falls apart.

@ErichBoehm

This is a beta release for those who wish to help the developer find and fix bugs and try out newer features. For the latest official stable release you should go here:

https://www.indigorenderer.com/download-indigo-renderer

Either way your comment doesn't do anything to help anyone, yourself included, solve whatever issues you're facing. There are some great, and very talented, people on the forum that might be able to help if they knew what the issue is. Also the developer can't fix bugs he's not got any actionable info on.
