View Full Version : animating with caustics - how?

03-25-2006, 04:39 PM
hi, i have made an animation and i render with caustics. how can i stop the flickering from the photons? there is a spotlight shoting out photons, and yes i can turn it off, but then i wont get the effect i want. please take a look at the animation and you will see the flickering. Thanks in advance :)

i wonder..my spotlight that shots out the photons is aiming at the glass..so i guess that the photons throws into the glass itselft and then bounce around in it and stays in there..can it be the reason for the flickering? how can i solve this? if i aim the spotlight at the side of the glass instead of on top of it, then the photons dont bounce, but then it wont give a caustic effect anyway, or?
