:x I am really frustrated with blender’s embedded yafray. I finally got it to render. however, I can not get it to render materials and textures. what I am I doing wrong. There are not many tutorials out there for newbies.
I would also like to try the YABLEX. I bought offical Blender 2.3 Guide. It has excellent documentation. However, being a newbie I do not know how to install the Yable script and where to get it and the steps to implement it on a windows xp machine. Please keep it smiple.
well, yafray doesn’t support certain blender procedural textures. I only know of the stucci bump texture, but i think there are more. And yafray also only supportes .tga and .jpg filetypes as textures.
I did not know about .RAR files. how do I open them. I have down loaded your video files. But their extension such as howto-yafray-dof.avi.rar i could not open.
I am assuming their is a offical website to download the .rar files please let me know.
Your video tutorial rocks. It has cleared up alot of fundermental questions that I had about yafray. .
my orignial question was
With new insight per your video tutorial I will rephrase the question. If understand everything correctly, HDRI and jpg files can be added to objects as images. I have been able to do this in both blender’s internal render and in yafray.
I am also able to UV map a jpg file onto an object (such as a cube) and render it using blenders internal render. However, when I switch to using yafray, yafray does not render uv map of jpg file.
IS THIS BECAUSE I AM DOING SOMETHING WRONG OR BLENDER DOES NOT SUPPORT UV TEXTURES?? I am using version 3.7a.
Not to objects but HDRI is used for illumination in the scene. While jpg can be added as texture on objects.
Had you enabled the UV-button in the textures panel? It works perfectly well as fas as I remember. Also if the problem continues try using Blender2.36 as the yafray release for 2.37a has not been made available yet.
