Are the caustics a real calculation or are they still fake? I ask that because the "golden ring" example on the web page looks like a real calculation of caustics. The details on the web page regarding caustics is not clear to me. Thanks for any info.

I may be wrong so don't take my word for it, but I believe they're fake. It's a difficult one to determine, the details are all a bit hazy, but they do render pretty quick and I've also seen pictures where they just look fake =S Correct me if I'm incorrect though...

In Version 6, you can chose between the faked caustics and real ones with photons. This is a realy nice option!
