using blender and yafaray in both windows xp and mac os

I have animations that are finished and need to be rendered. they were made with the mac os version of blender. i use yafaray to render. can i transfer the finsihed animation that i did on the mac os version of blender, and render it on my other computer (windows xp version) Is this possible?

You should be able to open any blend file in blender on Windows, OSX, Linux, Solaris, Irix, etc without any problem.

excellent. what if my animations have jpegs images? My animation on mac os uses a bunch of jpegs that i have saved on the desktop of my laptop. if i render on my windows xp? would i need to move the jpegs from the mac os laptop to my windiows desktop as well?

Yes or as an alternative you could take advantage of the package feature which would allow you to pack all of those images into the .blend eliminating the need to transfer them.

thank you . how do i use the package feature? i have blender 2.49b

this is key for me. anybody know how to package the images ?

File -> External Data -> Pack into .blend file ?

If these are texture images, you will have to unpack them on the destination machine to be able to use them with Yafaray.
