What are caustic photons?

What are caustic photons?

It’s the term used that describes the patterns of light and color that occur when light rays are reflected or refracted from a surface. These caustic photons can be directed toward a single object creating the light patterns and distortions on the floor or wherever the object happens to be sitting.

What is a caustic effect?

Caustics are the effects of light cast onto an object via reflection off or refraction through another object. Swimming pool rendered without caustics. Reflective caustics added to swimming pool. To calculate caustics, the mental ray renderer uses the photon map technique.

What is a caustic pattern?

Caustics are the evolving light patterns one often sees swimming pools, rivers, lakes and oceans. Sun light when it hits a water surface is reflected and refracted specularly in various directions. The water surface acts as a distorting lens focusing and defocusing the sunlight on nearby objects.

What is caustic in physics?

In optics, a caustic or caustic network is the envelope of light rays reflected or refracted by a curved surface or object, or the projection of that envelope of rays on another surface.

What is caustic liquid?

Caustic soda is colorless, transparent, and viscous in liquid form, and solidifies depending on its concentration and temperature. Caustic soda is the most representative strong alkaline solution, and exhibits strong alkaline properties in water solution, in which it easily dissolves.

What is caustic KeyShot?

Caustics is the way light rays are reflected off a surface or through an object. If you have rendered these types of products or just have an eye for lighting, it may pop right out. Caustics are enabled in KeyShot with one-click from the KeyShot Lighting tab.

What is a caustic fluid?

adj. 1 capable of burning or corroding by chemical action.

What is light on water called?

When light travels from air into water, it slows down, causing it to change direction slightly. This change of direction is called refraction. When light enters a more dense substance (higher refractive index), it ‘bends’ more towards the normal line.

Is caustic liquid or solid?

Caustic soda is colorless, transparent, and viscous in liquid form, and solidifies depending on its concentration and temperature. The liquid form is primarily used, but the solid form is available(flake, small grain). Flakes are white, semitransparent, flat crystals that are highly absorbent.

Is KeyShot the best rendering?

KeyShot is my favourite rendering tool. It is fast and accurate, can handle heavy scenes and it can render in very large resolution in no time. It is a perfect companion for my personal illustration workflow.
