Is there a way to render an anti-aliasing sample rate pass on Yafaray like V-Ray does?

enter image description here

This is extremely useful to fine-tune the render settings and have a quality output without cranking the AA settings high up.

I've seen something like this on the Yafaray documentation (on the render settings chapter about AA threshold) but I couldn't find a way to render it:

  • $\begingroup$ I'm currently trying to implement Render Passes functionality in YafaRay and this looks interesting. Please will you explain more in detail what this pass should do? If possible I would try to implement it. $\endgroup$ Jul 11, 2015 at 17:42
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidBluecame if you are interested in implementing this, please refer to this link: cggallery.com/tutorials/vray_optimization its very useful to understand about this concept $\endgroup$

I've released YafaRay-E (experimental) v2.0.0, which includes Render Passes, Render Views and, among other things, there is a samplerate pass available that shows the places where the adaptative AA is sampling more pixels. It's not exactly what you showed here, but I hope it's good enough.

You can download it from here:


Best regards.
