Beta build - YafaRay 0.1.5 for Blender 2.73 Win7-8.1 64bit

Post Sun Mar 22, 2015 8:52 pm

Hello,

I have prepared a beta build of YafaRay 0.1.5 for Blender 2.73 for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 (64 bit versions).

Blender Exporter for Blender 2.73 (Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 64 bits):
https://github.com/DavidBluecame/YafaRa ... 064bit.zip

EDIT 2015-03-29: I changed this link to beta2 version now, which is the same except for it does not need any DLLs to be copied to the Blender folder. More information in http://www.yafaray.org/node/612#comment-812

Example of Yafaray rendering in Blender 2.73 using Windows 8.1 64bit:

Please let us know if this works for you or if you have any problems with that Beta build.

Best regards. David Bluecame.

It works well in my Win7 64bits, I have been able to test it with several scenes with no problem. Thank you.

I hope more people can confirm it works so we can move it to the downloads page.

We got one :-)

http://www.yafaray.org/community/forum/ ... 981#p30981

The only thing I'm not happy about this beta is that you have to copy some DLL to the Blender folder. I figured out how to fix that, but I would need to change a small part of Blender-Exporter python initialization code. Is that ok, Álvaro?

If you are ok, I can make another build with that change so no need to copy DLLs around...

Best regards!

hi David, thanks for these builds. I think we finally have good binaries for Windows users!

About your proposal, do whaterver solution you think will require less maintenance and endure longer. The current system about installing the add-on through the Blender User preferences panel like any other add-on is good but only makes sense if Blender developers can keep the add-on system in good shape and does not break every two or three Blender releases. For instance, having to install DLLs in Blender folder is not the expected way for the addon system to work, from Blender developers perspective. Maybe we should consider going back to an installer if things are easier for us that way.

Hello, Álvaro.

As discussed, I have made two new builds (Beta2), one for 32bit and another for 64bit.

Also, I've updated the download links acordingly in the "Testing Builds" part of the forum.

The only difference is that it's no longer needed to copy manually any DLL to the main Blender folder.

For more information:

I hope it helps, best regards!

This is great news! :D

I confirm it's working on windows 8.1 x64, and I just tried it with official blender 2.74 as well. works perfectly!

Thank you David!

Always a pleasure tocayo (namesake) ;)
I hope I can keep on helping. Efforts like David's are very valuable and show how much a community supports and appreciates an initiative like Yafaray's.
I wish for Yafaray not to disappear but to evolve according to nowadays renderers' standards.

Regards,
Álvaro F. Celis
