This might be a dumb question, but can you do a defocus in a yafaray render? and just clarifying, does the blender node system work with a yafaray render? I really like the look of yafaray and know how to use the blender internal fairly well. Thanks
Yes, you can do defocus with Yafaray:-
The Yafaray documentation is for 2.49 but the settings for 2.57 are similar. They are in the Camera settings panel.
I think at the moment only compositing nodes are available, but check first, I may be out of date.
thanks a ton. Got it working
