YafaRay experimental v0.1.99-beta2 build Win7 / 8.1 64bit

Post Sat Apr 18, 2015 11:13 am

Hello,

I've prepared an Experimental YafaRay version (I called it v0.1.99-beta2) with several more changes respect to the previous beta1 (for more info about the previous beta see http://www.yafaray.org/community/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5082:

* Fix for some cases where Normals were incorrectly calculated and showing black NaN areas.

* IMPORTANT: This beta2 includes an EXPERIMENTAL change to calculate automatically Shadow Bias and Minimum Ray Dist depending on the scene size. This is to avoid black artifacts when resizing the objects. However as it's a fundamental change that affects everything, perhaps some new artifacts could appear in the images now and further fine tuning needed in this new formula. Please give us feedback about it in the forum:http://www.yafaray.org/community/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=5084

* Small correction in the new Clay Render system. In the previous beta1 the original diffuse reflection for each material was incorrectly preserved. Now it will force it to 1.0 during Clay Render.


The Windows 64bit build can be downloaded from:
https://github.com/DavidBluecame/Blender-Exporter/releases/download/v0.1.99-beta2/YafaRay.v0.1.99-beta2.2015-04-18.-.experimental.build.for.Blender.2.74.Windows.7-8.1.64bit.zip

EDIT 2015-04-25: I've also made a Windows 32bit build today, see here:
http://www.yafaray.org/community/forum/viewtopic.php?p=31112#p31112

Please test it and let us know if it works for you or if you have any new issues or problems. If all works fine, perhaps these improvements will be included in the next official version of YafaRay.

I hope it helps! Best regards. David.

Is there a Win 32 version of this?

Someone at blenderartists is getting no image textures rendering on what seems to be 32 bit Windows(I'm not a Windows user, so not sure) using Blender 2.74:-

Hello,

I had the Windows 32bit on hold because there is a problem reported by samo in my previous win32 build of the v0.1.5 about loading EXR textures un yafaray causes the entire Blender to freeze or crash and I have pending investigate why.

I can resume that investigation now to try to get a working 32bit Windows version for the experimental v0.1.99 asap.

I'm currently investigating this problem with EXR in YafaRay for Windows 32bit. If I can make it work I will create the experimental v0.1.99-beta2 build for it.

In the mean time, you can use the build I made for v0.1.5 for Windows XP SP3, 7 and 8.1 32bits (although it has the problem with EXR), you can download it here:

I'm making progress with the Windows 32bit build... as soon as I have a new build I will let you know.

Also, for your information I made a test scene to check how YafaRay handles the different image formats for textures, etc:

David,
Thanks for the new build. It is working for me on Windows 7 64bit via Wings3D. No problems yet.

Is there any chance you can add SSS, which is working very well in the 0.1.5 SSS build by povmaniac?

Thanks,

Hello,

Yes, it's in the list of feature requests (http://yafaray.org/node/193) but for now our resources are very limited at the moment.
