I’ve had a good crack with Cycles for the last few months, but the Path Tracing algorithm just isn’t doing it for me with interior scenes, Photon Mapping is pretty essential for these. From what I’ve read it’s not on the cards for Cycles at the moment unless some bright spark writes some code for it.
I’ve just had another look at Yafaray, it’s been a while - after a bit of trouble trying to get it to work (my fault in the end) I’m looking for resourses.
The problem at the moment is that most of the docs are for old versions of Yafaray - there’s a lot of info there, pdfs etc, but the settings are quite different now with the beta release.
Additionally the tutorials/scene file leave a lot to be desired. Most of them are for older versions - I know you can convert them, with the convert from 2.4x button - but the results never look as good for some reason when rendered. Plus there aren’t many examples either that show interior scenes.
Anyone got any links, or info to share please?
