Using Shadow Caustics in Blender 3.2


Kaizen Tutorials writes:

Blender 3.2 is here! And with that we are getting caustics in Blender. It's truly amazing! We'll create a drinking glass together and I'll show you how use caustics, because they aren't enabled by default and you need a few things setup for it to work properly. So let's get started and let's get into it!

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Looks great in the viewport, but when I render it there's no sign of the caustics on the ground plane? Any idea which setting(s) are wrong/necessary?
