What is a PIGM file?

A PIGM file is a packed material (.IGM) used by Glare Technologies Indigo Renderer and Indigo RT, 3D visualization applications. It saves an IGM material in a .ZIP format, significantly reducing the material file size and making it more convenient to distribute materials online.

More Information

Indigo Renderer is a 3D rendering application that allows artists to create photorealistic images. The software simulates the physics of light to generate images for various purposes, including architectural mockups and film special effects. Indigo Renderer is available as a standalone application or as a plugin for other 3D CAD programs.

Additionally, Indigo RT is also a high-end 3D visualization application. It is similar to Indigo Renderer but offers fewer features and is less expensive.
