Is it working with maya 2011 64 bits? I can't manage to load the plug-in.

sorry, not now. i am coding using 2011 32 bit. but i will try to build the plugin on a 64-bit. then it will work on 64 bit maya.
thank you very much for your help dot. :)

yafaray is simple,doesn't have so much shaders and other features, but trust me, it's fast. especially if you are working on stills.
