5 hours that is painful. Looks like a promising image. I wouldn't have thought Octane to take that long for an image such as that.

Hi,
if I remember well, the issue was in the Max Reject value at 1000, after setting it at 100, the speed was not so bad:

I wouldn't hold your breath for the new caustics engine, just look at the Anime kernel - it's been almost 3 years and we're still waiting...

I agree. I don't understand why Otoy keep saying the new PPM and anime kernal is "coming", but you cannot deny the fact that it is not.
The tech demo looks cool. But it isn't delievered what's the point?

I don't suppose there's much point asking again, but can the developers shed any light on the current expected (rough) timeframe to roll out the PPM kernel? It really could be a game-changer for liquids rendering.
