Hey all, Im new to animation and found Blender to meet my needs. I have heard of YafRay and even downloaded some small file but I dont know what it is and how to use it. An help of any sort would help me even tutorials on Blender. I have bought the Offical Book and so far its ok. I misses alot of steps.

what operating system are you on?

If you are on windows, just run the Yafray installer to install it. Then you need a script to output your blender scenes to Yafrays XML format. The most current one is here:

so download that, load it into a text window in Blender, run it & bob is your second cousin.

Thank you Chris. :thumbsup:

yable is the export script for yafray
=> it takes the model information and puts it in yafray's format.
It also lets you assign materials to the models, and cgange light properties.
Just try. It's very easy.

you'll also need to install python

to set it up correctly you'll need to check this lit'l thread:

it's not complicated, and Yablex is very handy!

So Blend ON!
