What is a PIGQ file?
An IGQ file is a packed queue (.IGQ) file created by Indigo Renderer or Indigo RT, applications that generate photorealistic images. It is a Zip-compressed package that contains a queue, which is a list of one or more scenes in Indigo Queue (IGQ) format that determines how the app renders multiple scenes. The queue also includes settings for the rendering process, including the scene and output paths, and halt settings for frames.
Indigo Renderer and Indigo RT are 3D rendering applications primarily used by professional artists to create images, such as building mockups and imagined scenes. The difference between the two programs is that Indigo RT offers fewer features and is less expensive. Also, Indigo Renderer is available as a standalone application or as a plugin for other 3D CAD programs.
You can create an IGQ file with Indigo Renderer or Indigo RT to save a queue to share with another Indigo user or save it for later use. The PIGQ format packs the IGQ file as a .ZIP archive to reduce the queue file size.
How to create a PIGQ file with Indigo Renderer or Indigo RT
You can view the render queue for your scenes, materials, etc., by selecting "Render Queue" from the dropdown menu in the "Render Settings" pane. In the Render Queue, you can add and remove scenes and adjust other settings, such as the scene and output paths and halt settings.
To create a PIGQ file with Indigo Renderer or Indigo RT, select File → Save Queue, then choose "Packed Indigo Queue" from the file type dropdown menu.
How to open a PIGQ file
Since PIGQ files are Zip-compressed, you can also change the .pigq file extension to .zip, then extract the IGQ file stored in the archive with a Zip compression utility, such as File Explorer (Windows) or Apple Archive Utility (macOS).
