Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

I decided to go that way because some settings didn't render correctly in SunFlow in virtual visit, and at the moment, YafaRay rendering plug-in reproduces the same settings.
But I plan to change these settings in a coming version in both rendering engines, if I can fix the issue in SunFlow.

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

Here's the version 1.2 of the YafaRay rendering plug-in which fixes the projection of the fisheye lens to make it similar to SunFlow's one and improves the launch delay of the renderer, mostly for scenes with large texture images. As this version creates much less temporary files, users with a slow hard disk should also see a faster launch.

It's based on the version 3.4.4 of YafaRay that David Bluecame kindly released to add more projection parameters fo fisheye lens.
I forked this version to avoid storing texture images in temporary files and to speed up the rendering of multiple frames in videos, an improvement that Enkonyito will hopefully integrate in his plug-in.

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

Emmanuel, do you plan to implement caustic photons for direct lighting in a future version?
@enkonyito
If it's not complicated, I'll add the missing methods in JNI if needed. Any information that will help me to program it faster will be appreciated.

I don't know which missing methods could be added in JNI because the caustic photons are enabled by default as for the sunsky background.


Here is a comparative test between SunFlow and YafaRay.

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

The version 1.3 of the YafaRay rendering plug-in published tonight handles better issues bound to missing memory.
Crashes should happen much less often particularly when the program runs in 32 bit, and a red cross should be displayed now instead of program crashing (at least the first time), letting users save their work if it happens.
I also improved the plug-in to avoid crashes when a rendering is immediately relaunched after a rendering in progress is stopped, as Ceciliabr reported.

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

Version 1.3 does not work on any of my Macs.

I have tried now on several Mac computers:
Mac Pro 5.1 with OSX 10.13.6 , Max Pro 6.1 with OSX 10.14.6, and on my Macbook 1019 with Catalina, where SH3D 6.3 won't even start.
SH3D asks for legacy Java SE6 runtime – which of course cannot be installed because a newer version is already installed.

What is your working config for OSX?

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

Ceciliabr, are you sure you use the installer SweetHome3D-6.3-macosx.dmg?
Apple Java 6 is required for the other installer SweetHome3D-6.3-macosx-10.6.dmg and can't run under Catalina.

Yes. The installer i downloaded is 67.3 MB and is called SweetHome3D-6.3-macosx.dmg. Unless some switch has been made, I'm running the correct version.

And obviously I'm not the only one experiencing this. I even tried it on my daughters Macbook air with Catalina, with the same result:

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

This installer comes with its own copy of Java 8, the reason why it’s much larger than the older ones. So there’s no reason why it would try to use Java 6.
I would suspect that you have more than one copy of Sweet Home 3D application on your computer and another version is associated with .sh3d documents.
This could happen if you open Sweet Home 3D by double-clicking on a SH3D file.
First try to launch Sweet Home 3D by clicking on its icon in the DMG you downloaded or a copy of it on you disk. Then if it works, try to remove the other Sweet Home 3D applications or change file associations in macOS if you know how to perform this change.

Re: YafaRay rendering plug-in

I suspect that's what happened with me. I normally open programs from the spotlight search ( an old habit), and usually the latest version is the one on top of the list. As it happens: it wasn't.

But v1.3 is still not working.
