I have not had a chance to test out YafaRay4tSv9.5 using it with Model yet.
Do you have a scene demonstrating it's use that I can try?
Thanks!
Here is a test scene for modelspace plus yafaray rendering. It has a NURBS vertex animation so it needs the python special mesh processing option.
I recommend protecting the materials manually before opening modeler, just in case.

Note to myself: update YafaRay to use new modelspace frame setting technique, like the new D3D Render

Any pointers on what to do with this scene?

Not really, just render an animation and see if it works.

Playing with the new Yafaray4tS... I am impressed ! You guys have made an awesome job !

Pathtracing mode with default settings is rendering a nice effect, and no crash even at very high resolution !

Thanks, that's nice to hear.
FYI, you can convert the materials to YafaRay materials by opening the Material Editor
1. Press the Convert D3D material button
2. Uncheck Selected Only and press Convert
3. Switch to the YafaRay4tS tab
4. Uncheck Selected Only and press Convert

Hum, an other error message.

I can convert modeler materials to D3D shaders, but next, when I try to convert into YafaRay4tS, I get an error message (it pops up 15-20 seconds after starting to convert, perhaps because that scene contains many materials).
Then trueSpace crashes.

Testing on a simple scene (just one object), there is no error message, but the conversion doesn't seems to work. When I try to convert a D3D shader to Yafaray4tS (here using Yafaray Shiny Diffuse), there is a message saying the conversion is done, but all I get is a white shader (texture and color are lost) and it is still a D3D Shader (not a Yafaray one).

Can you share the simple scene, or even the complex one?

A note from my website: "There are several different material node connections and encapsulations. There may be some cases that have not been accounted for which could make the conversion unpredictable."

Maybe that is what's happening here.
