External Renders

Hello, I have been playing with Blender, and I have gotten Yafaray so far, however, I am curious to know about some others as well, such as Octane and Vray. I noticed that if I make an object and add materials and textures as I would whilst using Cycles render, and go to render it in Yafaray, it doesn’t work, I’d like to know why that is, and how to set up objects to be rendered with things such as Yafaray.

Thank you.

Because you can’t use data from one renderer in another. Create a separate copy of the file, or append the objects to a new file. If you want to render in Cycles, use Cycles materials. If you want to render with Yafaray, use Yafaray materials.
