Well the difference is that such a ray file source describes the appearance of the light emitting surface additionally. It doesn't reduce the light source down to a point...

The far field intensity should be equal to the IES source description.

I'm seeing some nice and cool new 2.3 features being implemented at an unprecedented pace. Fantastic
But let me ruin the fun a bit and step back a little....

I cannot use environment cache (autoportal) for preview, cause it is too slow to compute and runs out of memory in region rendering..
It drives me crazy and while I can work without many features, something that speeds up interiors as portals/autoportals is just irreplacable. And especially when we have optix/rtx that speeds up complex gi sampling a LOT - cycles/octane.

I know luxcore has it's own agenda. But I always hope this all can be made so simple, that people don't have to setup anything and still get best out of luxcore.

About this: just set the radius by hand (i.e. use a value != from 0.0) and you will have no problems with region rendering.

About the speed problem, I can accelerate the DLSC and EVLC (not PGI) by 2-3 times but I need to find the free time to work on it. The trick is to use Embree shadow rays instead of normal rays: I have even done a test and it was 2+ times faster but writing a complete solution is not trivial.
