Hi everyone, I've noticed an issue shining a light through a refractive material. The refractions don't seem to be energy conserving. Using a point light with intensity 1, exposure 0, no attenuation, shining through a grid with a basic mantra surface material with refractions enabled, the brightness values of the resulting pixels in the render are extremely high. Some are as high as 4,000. Why is this? In this thread, Symek mentions that the BSDF model is not inherently energy conserving, so it would have to be applied post-process. Seems odd that this wouldn't already be done in SideFX's shaders... If that's the case, though, how can I make refractions in the mantra surface shader energy conserving? Thanks, Chris EDIT: Forgot to upload sample scene, here it is light_refraction_broken.hip
