I have tried the tutorials on YafRay’s site and on BioRust site, on using hdri pics in blender but failed to get result.
I have blender 2.37 and yafray 0.0.7 and now yafray 0.0.8
The steps I followe:-
1> Started blender.
2> earased the cube.
3> added an uvsphere & a plane
4> went to World buttons by pressing F8
5> clicked ‘add new’ in ‘texture and input’ tab.
6> pressed F6 to goto Texture buttons
7> changed texture type to Image.
8> loaded a hdri image.
9> Render tab .
10> changed render engine to yafray
11> In yafrarGI tab changed method to SkyDome (also tried Full) and quality to medium (also tried with best).
The image gets rendered within 2-3 seconds on my P4 but there is effect no of the hdri image.
I then deleted the lamp and re-rendered; the picture came up black, as it should if there are no lights. HDRI just having no effect! I tried different hdri pics. I downloaded these pics from a site, they were in a zip file.
Some of the file names from this zip are uffizi_probe.hdr, beach_probe.hdr, etc.
AND do you know of a good hdri picture viewer?
