Yafray doesn't render 3d text?

I’m trying to make 3d text.

I make the text, extend it using the “curve and surface” panel in the “Editing” buttons… it looks fine onscreen and when I render it with Blender internal, but Yafray doesn’t work: it renders the edges but not the front or back faces of the text.

1/ Is it because yafray just doesn’t support the same kind of curve faces as Blender?

2/ Is there a way of “solidifying” the text/curves into a proper mesh so that they will render correctly?

Thanks for your help


Convert to mesh with Alt-C


This bug is fixed but is not in cvs yet. For now you will have to convert to mesh as Fligh % said.

Thanks for your help, that works great!
