Caustics save solution not working


Recommended Posts

I'm working with caustics and trying the "Save Solution" option:

After rendering once, when I change the "Recompute" option to "Never" it can't find the file:

Apparently it's supposed to save the data in a folder labeled "illum" in the project folder, but there's nothing there. I'm running R19.053, I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if it's just a bug with my version.

Hello, Ninja. That's a funny name. :-)

...

Are you sure you have paths correctly organized? I've tried and it works.

...

Maybe you should do a test with just a sphere in a different folder to see if that is a bug or a miss.

...

Cheers.

I figured it out! You have to have the 'Save' option checked before it will save illumination information:

It wasn't until I noticed I wasn't able to save irradiance cache either and looked that up and realized it was all connected. Only took me 3 days to figure it out :/

Well. Sometimes... simples things are the complex ones...

...

In my test all was checked at start.

...

Did you make a new scene to test it out? Maybe that was part of the answer...

...

Thanks for sharing the solution for your problem. It will help someone, someday...

...

Cheers.
