Good morning.

I would like to know if you can help me to solve a problem I have with the CESSENTIAL_Direct element to illuminate through a glass.

Below I show a clear example comparing it with Vray (I attach images).
In the image made with Vray, in the scene I have the glass of the shower, and in the "Lighting" element I can get the lighting also behind the glass.

In the case of Corona, it is not possible to obtain lighting information through the glass, I understand that it is possible to work it also from the "Refract" element, but I don't have the same control to work it in Photoshop.

I hope you have been able to understand my doubt.
Best regards!

Yes, you can either use refract render element or the raw component render element set to "refract". You can composite the direct + refract element together to receive the same result as the V-Ray Lighting pass. I don't understand what do you mean by "I don't have the same control to work it in Photoshop." Can you please elaborate?
