Now, just so you are certain where the Light cache controls can be found, let's go and open up our Render Settings window. Let's go into the Indirect Illumination tab, and with Light cache set as our Secondary bounce engine, let's go and open up the Light cache rollout, and you can see, we have all of these options, all of these controls that we can work with to create our GI solution from a secondary bounce engine perspective.
