Installation

YafaRay Installation

The YafaRay Render Engine is not included with YafaRay4tS and you will need to install it separately in order for YafaRay4tS to work properly. You can download the YafaRay Render Engine for Windows from the YafaRaywebsite.

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.

1.) Download the latest version of YafaRay for Windows from YafaRay.org.

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.
