Beta build - YafaRay 0.1.5 Blender 2.73 Win XP-7-8.1 32bit

Post Thu Mar 26, 2015 8:29 pm

Hello,

I have prepared a beta build of YafaRay 0.1.5 for Blender 2.73 for Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 (32 bit versions).

You have the download link here:
https://github.com/DavidBluecame/YafaRa ... 032bit.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. The missing _ctypes.pyd still needs to be copied manually to Blender\2.73\python\lib as it's a problem in Blender 2.73 (32 bit) itself.

==IMPORTANT== Blender 2.73 32bits has an issue with a missing file _ctypes.pyd in Blender\2.73\python\lib You need to copy manually the file to that folder so it works with external renderers. Follow the instructions into "yafaray\README" file

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

Best regards. David Bluecame.

Hi David,

This is confirmed working in Blender 2.73 32bit Win8.1 64 bit, I will try running this with B 2.71, 2.72, 2.74...
Thanks for sharing.

I changed the download link to beta2 version now, which is the same except for it does not need any DLLs to be copied to the main Blender folder.

The missing _ctypes.pyd still needs to be copied manually to Blender\2.73\python\lib as it's a problem in Blender 2.73 (32 bit) itself.

Please try it and let us know how it goes. Thanks!

hi

I have been able to test your last build in a Win7 32bits sytem. It works well with PanF and cornellbox262 scenes from demo files repo. However I get always a crash in the materials scene just when yafaray is loading the EXR texture used for the background.

I have been making more tests with EXR input (as a background texture) and output (render into EXR image file option) and I get consistent crashes with this yafaray 32bits build running on Blender 2.73a 32bits, tested on Win7 64bits. Blender crashes either when YafaRay is loading the EXR texture or when it is saving the EXR image onto the hard disk, as per the console information. It is very likely that EXR input as a material texture will result in a crash too. I hope it helps.

HDR format is working though.

Hello,

I will take a look at the EXR problems in the 32bit version as soon as I can. I will let you know about my findings...

Hello,

I'm making progress with the OpenEXR crash. I'm not yet sure of why this problem happens, but looks like some kind of conflict between Core code and the OpenEXR libraries.

For the builds I've made so far, I used the "official" method (libraries for win32 and win64 from https://github.com/megasoft78/Core/downloads (as stated in http://www.yafaray.org/development/documentation/build/windows). They are working ok (so far) for the Win64 builds but as you noticed, not so well for Win32.

As those libraries are quite outdated anyway, I'm trying to figure out how to build from source all the libraries, to use more recent versions and not being limited to those old precompiled libraries from megasoft78. I have received some help from povmaniaco who very kindly sent me some information that is helping me to prepare a full build system.

After working the entire day on this, just a few minutes ago I got my first build of YafaRay for 32bits with the new libraries compiled from source. The result is not bad, it no longer crashes with OpenEXR and I could render the scene. However, for some reason the preview of the World image is not showing correctly, but at least it no longer crashes! :-) I rendered this in Windows 7 32bit:

Hello,

I've made a 32bit build of the experimental v0.1.99-beta2, see here:
http://www.yafaray.org/community/forum/viewtopic.php?p=31112#p31112

I tested it with the EXR input textures and output to image and it seems to be working ok. Please test this and let me know.

I hope it works ok for you!

Thanks David, it works here in Win7 64bits. It can load and save EXR.
