Caustics inside Caustics

Post by tizxx » Sun Aug 23, 2020 8:07 pm

Hello to all,

my name is Tiziano Silvestri, I love LuxCoreRender and Blender integration,
thank to DRAVIA.Studio I can obtain this today

What do you think about ?

I never see caustics inside caustics with a Path Tracer Render

I only use a HDRI Image as a light source ...

LunxRenderCore do the rest - FANTASTIC !

Very happy that you manage to get something nice out of your early days trial with Luxcore. BTW i think i should update a bit my Tutorial about SDS caustics ( caustics seen throught a mirror or water pool ).

can i see your settings ? i think we can extract far more perf if your result is based on my tutorial :mrgreen:
just capture the screen with the caustics settings.

Ok here is the blend with some adjustments.

__Env cache disable (this is portal features for interior render)
__Disable light tracing (no big contribution here)
__ 10 milion photon back to 3 milion can even be 1 milion
__ reduce the caustic cache photon number/size/minimum size (for sharper faster caustics render)
__ raise up the clamping to 50 for brighter caustics
__ Halt condition reduce to 100
