Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in
Test on Demo home #7
A further test under Ubuntu shows that YafaRay uses only one (1) core during the preparation of the rendering (approx 35 seconds).
Once that is done, it uses all 6 cores of my computer for the full 100% during the actual rendering (13-14 minutes).

Test on Cecilia's test file
Testing Cecilia's file, I decided to do a Q1 test run to see if I had the same image as in the other tests. YafaRay behaves VERY STRANGE and shows me a more or less random part of the room in close-up, not the center of the room where the virtual visitor is looking at. Q2 gives the same result.

In Q3 and Q4 YafaRay is lightning fast and delivers an image within one minute.
Interestingly, the processor usage during the preparation phase can be very different when you do two consecutive renders of the same image.
