Good day all,

I am trying to find all the option that the render has.

Like I am looking for something like, does it do caustic?. trying to pin what the render as to offer.

I am looking to see if I will acquire Lightwave. Playing with the demo at the moment, learning the software.

thank you

Yes, it does Caustics. Not as well as a physically based renderer will, but there are choices for those; some having plugins for LightWave, others as standalone. For standard Caustics, though, the internal renderer is fine. You can see an example here (http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?133251-11-5-s-BenchmarkMarbles-lws-share-your-machine-s-render-time-here).
