hello, this is my first real post on elysiun. after a bit of a struggle, i’ve managed to get yafray up and running, and i’ve been running tests like this one all day. so far i love blender/yafray and the direction they’re both headed (such rapid development recently!).
a couple of questions:
why doesn’t the pink sphere cast any light even though i’ve set its ‘emit’ parameter very high (the slightly lighter area on the left hand cube near the sphere is not receiving illumination, that’s the effect of radiosity) am i missing a parameter or can objects not act as area lights in yafray?
some insight into what’s happening with the photon’s? i’ve got three lights in this scene, all occupying the exact same position, pointing in the same direction because they’ve been tracked to the whiskey glass. an wide area light to provide gentle illumination, a photon light (is it too strong?), and a spotlight with a clear path to the whiskey glass (why no specular highlight?). the lights are located above and behind the cubes.
all comments appreciated to help me resolve this. thanks.
