Do you mainly use YafaRay for stills or animations?

Hey Guys,

I am from a renderfarm called GreenButton and I am just interested in what YafaRay users mostly use it for? for creating stills or animations?

Also I am an interested in why you guys prefer to use YafaRay over LuxRender and other renders?

Would love to hear any of your feedback on this.

Thanks for your help,

Cassie

I think the vast majority of users use Yafa for stills.

As for why use Yafa; because it still has the best speed / quality / features / ease of use ratio of all FOSS renderers. If I limit the option to FOSS renderers, then simply put; Lux is too slow, Aqsis is too hard, BI is too unrealistic, Cycles is too far away...

Ease of use, speed of render, quality of output - and freedom.

Mostly stills. Though I would like to animate more, on my system, even a 5 min sequence can take two months to render.
