Separate 'Size' Value for Corona Sun Caustics

(1/1)

dj_buckley:
This might be a niche request but I'd love the ability to specify 2 different size values for the sun (or any lights) to control how caustics appear independently from shadows etc.

Example, I've got a scene where I've got the Corona Sun size set to 2.5, the shadows look great, but I hate the pool caustics.  They're just too blurry.  And vice versa, if I change the sun size to 0.1, the caustics look incredible but the shadows now too harsh.

I appreciate this would be the reality, but sometimes aesthetics beats physics.

So it would be great to have 2 settings in the Sun, Size (Shadows) and Size (Caustics)

Hi,

I understand your request, but this should be easily achievable using two suns (Using include and exclude) options.

dj_buckley:
Correct it is, but when you have multiple scenes with thousands of objects, other scenes xref'd in etc, a simple box with a number would be much much more efficient in all aspects.

pokoy:
+1, makes sense and saves time!

Hi,

We have made a note of it for possible future consideration. We will let you know if there will be any updates on this.
