YafaRay for trueSpace7.61 version 7.5 Update

Post by trueBlue » 19 Nov 2013, 16:33

Many thanks to clintonman for creating YafaRay4tS version 7.5 that fixes several bugs on version 7.0 and adding several additional functions to this project. Below you will find the two 32 bit versions of the YafaRay render engine used in creating YafaRay4tSv075

YafaRay Installation

Before getting started please note that the YafaRay installer asks for a Blender Installation Directory to install Blender specific python files. These are not necessary to use the YafaRay Render Engine with YafaRay4tS, if Blender is not installed you can get around this by creating a temporary directory to hold the Blender related files before running the installer. When asked by the installer for this Blender directory, either use the dialog's Browse button or enter the path to your temporary directory that you have created. It is safe to delete this folder after the installation has finished. This only applies to users that do not have Blender installed. It is also not necessary to download and install the Qt_Libs - qt_setup.exe nor Python 2.5 as these are also specific to Blender. It is necessary to have the MSVC++ 2005 SP1 redistributable libs installed, but if you have successfully installed tS7.61 then those are already installed on your machine.

1.) Download one of the version of YafaRay for Windows above. At this time the beta version 0.1.2 is required for z-depth and fog effects. Only one version of YafaRay can be installed at one time.

2.) If you don't have Blender, before running the installer, create a temporary directory to hold the YafaRay Blender scripts. Example: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender

3.) Run the Yafaray setup file.

YafaRay4tS Installation

YafaRay4tS was created to work in tS7.61 Workspace (Rosetta)
It does not work in Model (tS6.6)
If you have previously installed YafaRay4tS before, Uninstall YafaRay4tS from the Add & Remove program in the Windows Control Panel first!

1.) Extract All the files from the YafaRay4tSv075.zip. into a folder named YafaRay4tSv075

IE: C:\trueSpace761\YafaRay4tSv075

2.) Open trueSpace7.61 and from the Workspace's File menu, Load the YafaRay4tS_Installer.RsObj from where you extracted the files.

3.) From the YafaRay4tS Installer panel select the "Install" button.

You should see a tS761 Question message asking: "Your existing YafaRay4tS Libraries will be deleted and replaced with updated versions. Would you like to continue?", if not select your keyboard keys Alt + Tab to bring the message forward. Selecting "Yes" will start the installation and selecting "No" will cancel the installation." If you have any content saved in any of these three libraries, they will be deleted, so save anything you want into a different library.

4.) From the Stack/Panel - YafaRay4tS/Setup panel, Set the YafaRay Install Path to where you have installed the YafaRay render engine.

IE: C:\Program Files\YafaRay\yafaray-xml.exe

5.) Check the Yafaray 0.1.2 if you are using that version.

6.) Select the "Save Settings" button to save your directories into the default YafaRay4tS object.

7.) Position the YafaRay4tS toolbar and save your Layout.

Congratulations you've finished your YafaRay4tS setup!

YafaRay4tS Uninstall

1.) Open trueSpace7.61 and from the Workspace's File menu, Load the YafaRay4tS_Installer.RsObj from where you extracted the YafaRay4tSv075 files

2.) Select the "Uninstall" button.
You should see a tS761 Question message asking: "Your existing YafaRay4tS Libraries will be deleted. Would you like to continue?", if not select your keyboard keys Alt + Tab to bring the message forward. Selecting "Yes" will uninstall the installation and selecting "No" will cancel." If you have any content saved in any of these three libraries, they will be deleted, so save anything you want into a different library.


Developer (clintonman) notes:
YafaRay4tS version: 0.7.5
Sunday, July 24, 2011

If you reset the Default Context you will have to install YafaRay4tS again.
Hair takes on the same Material as the base mesh it grows from.
There are 2 options for preparing an Character or a Skeletal mesh for rendering with Yafaray:
1. Apply a Morph then right click to immediately exit the tool.
2. Apply SDS to the mesh. The first SDS (Level 1) is the preferred method unless the mesh is already subdivided.
The SPPM Lighting is currently not working in Yafaray 0.1.2 beta.
The material texture map X Scale and Y Scale only works well for odd whole number values.

Note: If the YafaRay4tS Help file does not display information in the right pane, locate the YafaRay4tS Help.chm file in your trueSpace installation folder IE: C:\trueSpace761\tS. Right click on the YafaRay4tS Help.chm file and select Properties. Select the Unblock button and Apply button if necessary.
