Material creation and usage in Blender

Post Sun Oct 02, 2016 4:41 pm

Good afternoon to all.
I'm very new in Yafaray but i'm loving it already.
My questios are:
What properties of Blender cycles (or internal) materials (I don't know witch types I can use with Yarafay) do Yafaray translate directly, or it is better to create materials from scratch?
Yafaray material creation in Blender involves just the "Material" and "Texture" panel, having all material options in there, or are there other properties in different locations?
Can we use Blender node system to create Yafaray materials?

Thank you very much for this amazing renderer!!

Hi, on my opinion its better to create material from scratch. All settings about materials is can be found on texture and material panel, I think yafaray is not using material nodes, and my advice for complex textures use the blend materials. I hope it helps
