So, I’d like to setup my materials so that I could render in Cycles OR Yafaray, and it seems like it will remember my materials for both renders when I switch between, except for the “Use Nodes” flag. Let me explain…
I setup my material in cycles using nodes (of course):
Switch to Yafaray - it kind of looks okay except all the properties about the material are missing!
- The only way I’ve found to get them back is switch to Blender Render (?!) and click the “Nodes” button. This button isn’t available in the other renderers.
- Yay! Material properties are back in Yafaray. But :mad:
they are now missing from cycles (until I click Use Nodes, which loses them from Yafaray).
I’m sure I’m being really dense here, has anyone else had this problem - or what is the procedure for setting up the materials in both renders so you can render in either by just changing the drop-down at the top?
I’m tempted to write a script to go through all materials in the scene and toggle the node property, but I can’t be the first person to want to setup materials in two renderers?
