Perspective can be rendered directly and there is no more need to create a camera before hit render.

This is the first step to create RT Renderer inside the viewport.

That's taking too much time because you have an intel GPU OpenCL install. in my advice remove the intel HD 4600 drive and it will fix the issue. Also, your computer will run faster.
Try it and let me know.
I will fix that to ignore any intel GPU very soon.
Thanks, that fix my problem

the cornell are rendered both with a Lux point light, because a mesh plane light would have add a lux sky

I've already reported through the bug tracker.
It's not a bug. There is an option for it called "Auto default light", you can disable it in the light sitting panel inside renderer settings.

This option will be disabled automatically if there is a light in the scene but mesh lights technically are material light and not lights.
maybe I add auto-detection for that too, but you can disable it simply.

Yes, I did it already, and it renders without adding a sky!

For skylight you need to add a little bit of gain, for example, 2.2 gain multiplayer would be a good number for clear sky, Also use a proper exposer for it like auto linear plus gamma correction 2.2 with 512 samples.

Skylight and/or sunlight are too bright and if you want to see other lights at the same time you need to power or gain.

Thank you Tao. I guess there will be also need for an infinite plane, to avoid the black.
Beside I noticed that if there are groups in the scenes, they will be all render even the geometries and the groups are all turned off.

The updated LuxBall scene file is 2021 version, files are on dropbox
vray scene link
LuxCore scene link
both scenes are the same, one is set with the latest maxtolux the other one for vray 5 using brute force/brute force
Inside there are the test renders too.

btw, the luxballs are body objects, which are nurbs geometries, I forgot to add the edit mesh on top, but it want make much difference nor converting to editable mesh.
inside there is the luxball made by Kirs which is a esh, it will render the same way as the one I updated.

I have posted the renders made with Luxcore and vray of the luxball with mirror material in the support topic.
