Guys, look at this, cant we have this in Blender?

These took only 30 sec on an old 780gtx, look at those caustics ? Amazing! Its luxrender.
But i want those caustics in Cycles!
Luxrender employs the BiDir CPU only for the caustics on the CPU, so its super fast cause the rest is on the GPU!

I’d love to have caustics, just when I thought I don’t really care I needed it for a project.

There’s a topic here about it, not sure if it’s going anywhere. Seems that the priorities are elsewhere. Honestly, I don’t mind that much, Brecht knows what he’s doing. Still, would be nice to have.

If you really want to stick with cycles you can try this trick. Never tried i though, the level of tedium was just too high. Maybe if I’m bored out of my mind I’ll give it a go.
