This activates cache entries on the material surface, which is independent from volume entries controlled by the checkbox in the volume node.
The invisibility or grayed-out display of those settings in BiDir is a bug IMHO.

Re: Prism Caustics

So I tried recreating the scene you attached from scratch and it still doesn't work somehow. In your file the photon cache is not checked for the glass volume. Somehow you cannot see this with BiDir engine so switch to path engine first. Now you can see the "use PhotonGI Cache" checkbox i...

Re: Prism Caustics

Re: Caustics Problem

In your file the world background is set to HDRI with no image attached, the white background is blowing out the caustics from the sun. Once I switch to Sky background the caustics appear: screenshot.jpg The lighting system was changed in a previous version, possibly that's why sun + white backgroun...
