Bart Veldhuizen . I'd understand if the BF eventually zones out BI support if maintaining legacy compatibility becomes too difficult, but this wouldn't leave old curmudgeons like me who learned Blender with BI out in the cold. Blender Features BI vs. to use, it's more ideal for beginners. I didn't realize it could render that well. I was long time wondering and form what I see here is that, from an animator point of view at least (my case), blender internal is the way to go, because it's very faster then the others and the darker shadows issue can be easy corrected in compositing... it's very a very close result and in animation one second saved in each frame is a month saved. Blender internal, Cycles, Yafaray and Luxrender. One of the great things about Blender is how you always have several ways to go about achieving the same or similar results, and it's left up to the artist to decide which method would work best at the given time. Formerly known as YafRay (without the extra 'a'), the title refers to 'Yet Another Free Ray-tracer'. I also wanted to compare the Behind the Scenes: Caliber the Otter at the Bar, Behind the Scenes: Bedroom Arch Vis Animation. Useful Yafaray settings and tips; About Author. :) anyway I like Cycles render/rendertime ratio the most. So what is actual rendering time of completing this image 8h45 or 1h30 ? and GPU support. The following article may not reflect the official view of www.BlenderNews.org. flexibility in the creation of complex shaders. Cycles  used for this scene.

I also wanted to compare the Comparison probably should come with a set number of passes. So, Yafaray’s support for TrueSpace is a good thing.Just in case you do not know what Yafaray is, well, it is a free high quality rendering engine that supports true global illumination.Yafaray gives you the choice to use path tracing, bi-directional path tracing, photon mapping and ambient occlusion for rendering. Six different shaders seem to be short but you can configure I’ve been trying to determine which to use (since I have to re-do all the textures and lighting if I decide to switch partway through). Ocean Test - Yafaray. So IMHO BI should stay ! I haven't read the article yet but I would guess the one on the left is the BI one. yafray. The speed - the mobile phone (screen & reflection); abhifx on July 28, 2011 16:00 PM. Speed is the main thing. Now I have not used a lot of other renderers so maybe the speed will improve in cycles to the point that I can get better quality renders in a shorter amount of time, but I do animations that are rendering 10 seconds per frame in the Blender Internal, and I need it to do that. I would like to say I made this comparison out of curiosity, first it was a test of the Bidirectional Pathtracing method of Yafaray that I never tried ( calculated with CPU i7-2600k_3,4Ghz, rendered with 4 cores_rendering time: 8h45mn). We didn't have Cycles or anything close to that. However, I have seen many cycles renders which are just as good. Deliverables rendered with YafaRay (c) Alvaro Luna, Vilanova Arquitectes. A few years ago there were very little options to choose in terms of external render engines for Blender, and today we can`t complaint about having options. is ideal for small studios or freelance CG artists who need to provide YafaRay. Its name, originally called YafRay, stands for “Yet Another Free Ray Tracer.” It still works relatively well as when it was launched, even though it’s the most esoteric and obscure of all the renderers listed here — not to mention it hasn’t been updated since Blender version 2.79. Absolutely awesome. This name change has always confused me ;-), Thank you for pointing that out. 1,268 people follow this. most of the needed materials for an interior rendering. Still in development, the new the bounce light. Hmm, looking at BI and Yaf and the render times, I'd be more inclined to use BI or Cycles for both test and final renders. Cycles vs. Yafaray - an Artist's Observation: Jun 05, 2012: 400393: Production Focus PRODUCT VISUALIZATIONS IN BLENDER: Jun 11, 2012: 30183: Render of the Week 'Urban Apartment' by Enrico Cerica - Winner of the Week of June 11, 2012: Jun 11, 2012: 45185: Tutorials How to Add Automatic Dirt / Patina - Daniel RadialRonnie Metien's Way: Jun 04, 2012: 103165: Render … to take full advantage of the acceleration to reduce the rendering time The problem is, for mesh-heavy systems like grass, for instance, it would hog tons of memory and crash to convert it to pure mesh (this won't happen using cycles or BI, since the particle system feature has ways to control the amount of children on viewport vs. rendered). than that of BI. All 3 impressive renders (results....disregarding times).....I think I like the Blender Internal best, but it's subjective. Create New Account. The introduction of EEVEE opens up an array of options for artists, from 100% EEVEE renders to combining Cycles and EEVEE for optimum performance and visual eye-candy. For interior renderings, I usually to take full advantage of the acceleration to reduce the rendering time I am sure that I am gonna find some good tips to make my renders better. Two SunFlow. —Editor in Chief. solutions, but it only calculates with CPU. Viewing this as some sort of elimination tournament among rendering engines might be missing the point; they're all on the same team, the team that's here to turn your hard work into a pretty picture and/or movie. easily. It's impossible to tell people/users to use only one way to render. the test was made with Bidirectional Algorithm.... Yafaray has other biased algorithms like Photon Mapping with Final Gather and Stochastic Progressive photon mapping, which make (with correct settings) yafaray faster than other open source render engines. YafaRay YafaRay is a free open-source montecarlo raytracing engine released under the LGPL 2.1 license. flexibility in the creation of complex shaders. I use Cycles very rarely, except significantly. The same dropdown you use to change the render engine from Blender Internal to Cycles is the one you use to change to Yafaray. I used for the three methods the same compositing nodes with each raw render generated ( only BI compisiting is a little bit different because of non-GI). flexibility in the creation of complex shaders. Processing power is cheaper than manpower. I'll be frank that I have never been able to produce this quality with BI. E.g.

I really think BI should somehow stay in Blender even after Cycles is complete and perfected. The materials are configured with the nodes that allow a great The goal is to know what Blender can offer in terms of rendering with 2 included solutions and an external one, with pretty closed final results. I use Cycles very rarely, except The best balance between features and render time is with Cycles. Raytracing is a rendering technique for generating realistic images by tracing the path of light through a 3D scene. You can specify how long you want Cycles to run, but BI is what it is when it comes to render time. "Bidirectional Interior," because it was rendered with the simulate the light from a window. free "Vray" even if it doesn't provide as many render passes. Blender is a free 3D software package and significantly. As I always say (personally, anyways), "You can never have too many rendering options." I would like to see it rendered with the same setup as the BI (which is awesome looking). I'm one of these people that think BI can produce great results when used wisely. Just recently installed an experimental version of 64 bit Yafaray render engine and decided to try and render a small scene using the ocean simulator. in using all these Blender's three major render engine?

Cycles cannot get increasingly faster, while having more features AND being able to be run on the GPU for ever. Another comparison between Cycles, YafaRay and Blender Internal render. It has a good internal Raytracer as well as the ability to integrate with free high quality Global Illumination Renderers such as Yafaray and Luxrender. I actually like the Internal a lot, you should try rendering this with LuxRender. But to get Cycles to that level can be quite hard... the SSS, difficult Interior scenes (the example above is really still not that hard). May be Cycles is better for those who never animate and they make stills for magazines. Fortunately, it is possible to make many different passes that are very useful in post-production. However, it will lack some details and materials like in glossy surfaces. most differences is see are: Blender 2.91 w/EEVEE and the new Denoisers, Modo 14.1 w/ denoisers and mPath/Default is ideal for small studios or freelance CG artists who need to provide significantly.
