iRender Cloud Rendering Service With Indigo For Cinema 4D

While there are a lot of rendering options out there in Cinema 4D such as main third-party render engines you need to know Arnold, Octane, Redshift and Cycles,… Indigo is one of the options, despite being a young renderer, Indigo renderer has many special features which could bring the exciting experience for users. Let’s get an overview about Indigo and how iRender service can improve your rendering performance with Indigo.

What is Indigo Renderer?

Indigo Renderer is an unbiased, photorealistic GPU and CPU renderer aimed at ultimate image quality, by accurately simulating the physics of light. State of the art rendering performance, materials and cameras models – it’s all made simple through an interactive, photographic approach with few abstract settings, letting you concentrate on lighting and composing your imagery.

Indigo Renderer works amazingly well with Cinema 4D, a plugin has been under active development for more than 8 years and has evolved into a powerful yet easy to use plugin for Cinema 4D.

Key features

  • Fast, realistic and effortless

Indigo’s easy to use material models make developing realistic materials a breeze. Combined with unbiased, physically based GPU and CPU rendering and realistic camera apertures, you’re ensured stunning image quality in very little time.

  • Interactive rendering

Tweak your objects, lighting and materials without delay using the built-in Interactive Rendering window. It uses the full quality Indigo rendering engine – what you see is what you get.

Indigo for Cinema 4D puts the capabilities of Indigo into the workspace you’re familiar with.

  • Light Layers
Indigo lets you transform your lighting by changing colours, temperature and brightness of your light sources – without re-rendering. Create many variants, such as day/night versions, from the same image.

System requirements

Indigo will run on most modern computers (generally Pentium 4 or newer). Please see the final section for GPU acceleration requirements and suggestions.

Minimum system specifications:


  • 64-bit x86 CPU with SSE4
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 150MB of hard drive space
  • Windows 7 or newer


  • 64-bit x86 CPU with SSE4
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 150MB of hard drive space
  • OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or newer


  • 64-bit x86 CPU with SSE4
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 150MB of hard drive space

Recommended system specifications:

  • 16GB+ of RAM

GPU acceleration:

  • Either an NVIDIA GPU supporting OpenCL 1.1 (GeForce 9800 GT or newer), or an AMD GPU supporting OpenCL 1.1 (Radeon 4xxx or newer)
  • 256MB or 512MB of onboard GPU memory, depending on OS 
  • 2GB of system memory

Indigo with iRender service

Indigo’s OpenCL-based GPU engine provides industry leading performance on Nvidia and AMD graphics cards, and on all major operating systems. With a modern GPU, it’s approximately 10x faster than the high performance CPU core of Indigo 3.8.

What’s more, this performance benefit scales with multiple GPUs in a single computer and multiple computers on a network. Simply add more cards and get the horsepower to quickly render incredible 4K images and animations.

With the mentioned system configuration requirements for Indigo, you may consider investing in your own machine or upgrading your existing computer. Or another attractive option is to use the service at iRender to get great advantages.

iRender has options for a multi-card server GPU packages with details below:

These servers are the ultimate online solution for Indigo rendering allowing up to multiple, powerful GPU multi-card servers. And, you can control the power and performance for the highest level customization and configuration in application resource usage. These servers are the premier solutions to maximize your advantage when you need it most – to win the project, to meet the impossible deadline, or pivot your visual direction with unparalleled speed.


As you all know, iRender provides high performance and configurable server system to customers who need to utilize the power of CPU & GPU such as 3D rendering, AI training, VR&AR, simulation, etc. With iRender services, you can access our server through the Remote Desktop Application and do whatever you want and install any software you need on it. It is like you are using your own computer but with a powerful configuration and much higher performance. In particular, you only need to install the software for the first time, the next time you connect to the computer everything is ready for you to use.

Besides, you can use iRender’s machines to render, and use yours for other purposes (such as designing or editing other files). This could save you time a lot, especially when you have a large project and a deadline is coming. iRender provides you powerful configuration packages with high performance that can speed up your rendering and improve your job quality. These are configurations of multi-card GPU servers that you should take into consideration if you want to have great performance with Indigo. And it also depends on the scale of your project to decide which is the most suitable one.

Another great feature that iRender brings to customers is day/ week/month rental packages with high discounts (up to 30% for daily packages, 50% on weekly packages, and 60% on monthly packages) which is extremely beneficial for regular long-term users or large projects.

Last but not least, real human 24/7 support service, helping you to handle the problem quickly, effectively, saving you both time and money.

With the benefits iRender gives you as well as the configuration that is very suitable Indigo Renderer for Cinema 4D, do not hesitate to use the service at iRender to have a great experience with your rendering  time.
