Why YafaRay isn't rendering my textures?

YafaRay can not load Blender encapsulated textures. If your Blender file has got encapsulated data, you must unpack first (File>External Data>Unpack). YafaRay will load textures from the created 'textures' folder.

During the rendering process, the Blender back console shows up messages when a texture image can't be found by YafaRay, pay attention to them. If your Blender file is unpacked but YafaRay can't load a texture, be sure that the path selected in the 'Image' panel points to the actual location of the image in your HD.

YafaRay supported formats are tga, jpeg, png, exr, hdr.
