Release date ?

Post Wed Feb 10, 2010 9:51 pm

Hi ,

I have 10years of experiences in cg effects for films
and work a lot with mentalray , renderman and now with 3delight.

I'm new with yafaray and very impressed of
what it did for Global Illumination. I trying in my
free time after work to learn more of blender in
the last years and did some test with yafray
a couples of weeks ago.

The only big thing is missing is subsurface scattering and
many others users said the same think. I'm not
sure but I think a read something somewhere in the forum
about the integration of Sss in the next build.

Somebody can tell me if it's true or not? And if someone
knows a release date for the next release of a official version
of yafaray(with or without SSS) ?

Thanks a lot !

Thanks for the link !
A lot of hard difficulty challenge for the GSOC. :)

And any date for the next release?
I see a couples of test builds with some fixed
bugs. Any idea when it's be officially released. I try
to find some response to my answer and I find nothing
on the forum about a date or a approximation of a release
( probably I search in the wrong place :? )

Below is a link to a preliminary list of crucial bugs and features for the .1.2 release:
http://www.yafaray.org/node/302

There is no expected release date, however the development builds from the forum already work well and you are free to use them. If you find an instability or missing/broken feature compared to official .1.1 version please report it in the bug tracker

There hasn't been an official announcement. I guess when it is ready.

If you are feeling adventurous, it is not too difficult to build from source on linux platforms. There is a link to information on the download page:-
http://www.yafaray.org/development/build

...and of course there is the Development Branch:-

BTW, why has Yafaray such a versioning system - I mean the software is production ready, but the version (0.1.x) is implying that this is something at a pre-alpha stage?

Version 1.0 will probably be some god-like rendering engine, able to take into account space-time curvature for the GI solution :mrgreen:

(sorry for the inappropriate intrusion, but I was really wondering)

I'm guessing because Yafray development stopped at version 0.0.9

I'm not familiar with compiling and i have a windows systems. But i suspect if i
install the binaries for windows on the link you give to me , i can test the last build. This download
link is updated each time a good build is created by someone ?

No, I don't think it is. If you search back from the end of the thread there are more recent community contributed builds.

I disagree, at least for windows builds. I think every time a new one is posted samo updates the first post. I'm hoping for a new build soon because of the recent flurry of commits.

The top post references r455 which does not support tangent normal mapping AFAIK.

I found a more recent Windows 32b build here:

http://static.yafaray.org/unstable/YafaRay-471-DTBranch-win32.exe

which does have normal mapping support but the bump map sensitivity is too high and there may be other anomalies as well.

i'm patient and not at the same time because what you doing is amazing ! :D

The only thing is , it's not really clear for a yafaray user ( or just me :wink: ) , where to get the latest
windows(linux ... OSX... etc ) build for test it. Not clear like graphicall for blender i think.

But is not bad critics , just my opinion.

I show some test to my
colleague at work ( in a big CGI studio for cinematic and vfx film at montreal where we
use MentalRay in the pass and working fully with 3Delight now ) and
they find my GI/Caustic/2DSubSurface image test with yafaray really beautiful.

To the coder and builder team : Continue your good work !
