blender's static particles and has a frosted glass shader.

Here are some test renders for static particles, for the frosted/rough glass shader and some other test renders.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Finally! Finally is possible to render particles. Yafaray is a great and fast render. Perfectly replaced the imperfect blender internal render.

  2. Yafaray development seems to be on the roll too.

    Windows 7 x64 seems to be really popular choice nowadays, so it's really a shame that there is no build for it.

    Too bad that none of their developers have 64-bit windows to maintain a windows x64 build of yafaray. It needs some 64-bit libraries too (which aren't readily available), so some of the interested user have also given up compiling yafaray 64-bit for windows.
