Hi rinse and Spirou4D,
I'm sorry but I was not checking on graphicall for comments.
I fixed now but for next time could you please post your issues on YafaRay forum?

Okay, there appear to be files missing in the 32-bit zip, mainly the files just under yafaray/ (e.g. __init__.py). The 32-bit exporter seems fine if I install the 64-bit first, then replace the bin directory with copy from the 32-bit zip.

Very happy to have YafaRay back! Thanks!

I'm having trouble installing the exporter. I followed the instructions in the video, same as I have before with 2.62, but Yafaray does not appear in the add-on preference at all. I see that Blender did install the yafaray folder in my C:\User\etc.\scripts\addons\, but it got that far at least. Loading the default preferences doesn't seem to make any difference.

Is the process entirely the same as 2.62 as shown in the video? Is there some sort of log I can look at to try and figure out why it's not working for me? Thank you!

Hi megasoft78,
There are a problem: where is the Blender 2.63a Exporter Addon in your zip? Just the Yafaray 0.1.2 beta5a......please.
Thanks for your job too.

Sorry, I have the same problem with pure blender. So it is not the right place to solve the problem. But if any of you know this issue please help me to solve it.

thank's a lot

Thank you for the build.
I don't know if it's a known issue but blender crashes when launching User Preferences.

kk what noob I am: must activate yafaray under rendering addons. thx again and sry :-)

thx a lot for your precious work! but or I'm stuck or must be a problem somewhere: in the last three builds I cannot select any yafaray engine for rendering. In the last build (09-24) comes back the render engine selection, but still yafaray isn't listed. Do I miss something? - consider I'm still noob with 2.5x so be patience :p thx again!

I have a problem since the last two release : when I try to launch the blender.exe, I have a 2.58 original version, not the yafaray build ... ?! I proceed as usual : unzip in a specific folder, and launch just after that ... what am I doing wrong ?

Hi Fadge,
It's better to ask yafaray forum and prepare a blend example.

Very Exciting Branch !

Keep working, you rock ! But a small question : why this branch did not appear when we try to use a filter on graphicall ? (when clicking on the icon in the box on the top right).

I have some problems of refreshing blend materials preview. Nothing appear, or direct crash. I have no file to share, but I think you can reproduce the error easily (coated glossy + shiny(+ texture) )
Many thanks from France !

Hi timon110,
can you post your scene at yafaray forum?


13:42 June 16th, 2011
And thank you for all your efforts making this build!

I was testing this build and there seems to be a problem when enabling "Transparent Shadows", whenever I activate it blender crashes, any idea on how to solve this?

To check if your CPU is SSE2 capable you can use a program such as CPU-Z.

Hi memo510,
can you post the error? Use command line and run from there blender to see the error messages.
Is your CPU supporting SSE2? If not is that the reason. Anyway if you want help you can ask to yafaray forum.

hi, first of all, thanks for the build i was really exited about this download because im a newbie @ blending so when i was ready to render a design i had everything whent downhill, blender render engine is good but i wanted to try yafaray or luxrender but to my luck there is no way i can make this plugins run, so ive been downloading this builds as an alternative... well i keep getting my blender shut down by windows and this data exclition prevention thing and i just cant run this thing, can any body point me in the right direction here?
Feeling talkative?
