YafaRay 0.1.1 Free Open-source Raytracing Engine...

YafaRay by YafaRay  is a free open-source raytracing engine. Raytracing  is a rendering technique for generating realistic images by tracing the path of light through a 3D scene.
A render engine consists of a " faceless" computer program that interacts with a host 3D application to provide specific raytracing capabilties " on demand" . Blender 3D  is the host application of  YafaRay 0.1.1.

YafaRay [yafaray0.1.1.exe] MAIN FEATURES

Global Illumination
Apart from direct lighting, YafaRay - 6MB uses  Global Illumination  to produce realistic renders of 3D scenes. Supported GI algorithms are  Pathtracing, Photon Mapping, Final Gather  and  Bidirectional Pathtracing.

Background Illumination
This illumination system is based mainly on light coming from an emitting sky, taking into account the soft shadows calculations also involved. The illumination can be obtained from simple backgrounds,   HDR  images  and complete  SunSkysolutions.

Caustics effects.
YafaRay 0.1.1 uses photon mapping techniques to produce fast yet accuratecaustics  effects.   Caustics  is light concentration produced by reflective and refractive objects. This option is available in several lighting methods apart from photon mapping. Caustics can be also calculated with Pathtracing paths.

Four shader types are implemented in YafaRay, which are  ShinyDiffuse, Glossy,   CoatedGlossy  and  Glass. They are flexible enough and with many parameters available for each of them to produce a wide range of materials, transparent surfaces and reflections.
Besides, there is a  Blend  option implemented to mix properties from several different shaders.

YafaRay supports several mapping options for texturing, blending of different textures and modulation of material parameters with textures.
YafaRay support several procedural textures as well. A  procedural texture  is a computer generated image produced by an algorithm and intended to create a realistic representation of natural elements.

YafaRay implements four camera types to reproduce different optic effects. YafaRay also supports raytraced  depth of field  (DOF) to focus a part of the scene.

YafaRay`s volumetric features provide a simulation of light interacting with particles suspended in a region of space. YafaRay uses a realistic physics-based model to render volumetrics, and provides a basis for creating not just believable beams of light, but also smoke, clouds, fog, and other volumetric effects.

What is new in official YafaRay 0.1.1 software version? - Unable to resolve 0.1.1 news. What is expected in the future? Newly-made YafaRay 0.2 be downloaded from current page, we also looking forward to unconfirmed 0.3 release build. You may download YafaRay-0.1.1-win32.exe directly, estimated download time by ADSL or EDGE [~1.8 Mbit/s] is 0:00:27. Just write the reviews of the YafaRay. System requirements are Blender 3D. Program has been scanned and verified by the several antivirus and anti-spyware applications and YafaRay found to be clean. New guides and YafaRay tutorials are easy to follow and give you the knowledge to use YafaRay 0.1.1 software. The following languages are supported by YafaRay: English.
