This is an Easy Fix, please make it happen asap!  

Background:
1) Indigo Renderer 'Beta 4' Series let you check a box to 'Enable OpenCL Rendering' (allows Multi-GPU) when using 'Path Tracing' render mode.  This option will ultimately also be part of the official release.

Issue:
2) Current plugin for iClone does not have this option to check or uncheck pre-export to Indigo.

***As such, you have to manually check it yourself manually in Indigo, and you have to do this on a PER-FRAME basis if rendering an animation-frame-series, which is a HUGE issue!!! (otherwise as it stands now the box is always defaulted to be unchecked as each frame renders.)



Solution:
3) Please add check-box 'Enable OpenCL Rendering' in plugin render settings, so an export from iClone knows to have the 'Enable OpenCL Rendering' box checked automatically in Indigo.

It's just an "if-then" function.  If checked in Render Settings, then check in Indigo.  Make it so even if checked, it bypasses when using Indigo version < 4.

Thanks!
PS - ME WANT NOW
Tony D.

Don't expect anything from Reallusion on this until Indigo is out of the Beta phase. No one knows what the final release will be like - until it is signed off by Glare.

I'm setting high expectations, Yes!  
Let's see if we have those expectations met.

I agree, you can't expect RL to jump on Beta features. There are other issues of the plugin that need fixing as well, such as suitability for animation with better data management.

As of Indigo 4.0.44, Indigo has override options in its render queue window, which lets you change settings for a whole animation. Such as enabling OpenCL rendering.
