YafaRay is a free open-source raytracing engine. Raytracing is a rendering technique for generating realistic images by tracing the path of light through a 3D scene. A render engine consists of a "faceless" computer program that interacts with a host 3D application to provide specific raytracing capabilities "on demand". Blender 3D is the host application of YafaRay.

YafaRay is currently used by a great community of professionals, proud hobbyists, students and academic institutions. YafaRay is released under the LGPL 2.1 license.
