Is it possible to increase the number of Light Groups?
This is a very powerful tool. It's great with him in composing.
OpenCL engines only support 8 light groups.
The CPU engines in LuxCore do not have a limit, but I limited them in BlendLuxCore to 8 because it makes the behaviour consistent, you can easily switch between CPU/OpenCL, and I don't have to write a lot of code to handle complicated corner cases (what do if there are more than 8 groups and the user switches to OpenCL?).

However, if you know these implications, you can raise the max. number of lightgroups by editing the file lightgroups.py in the folder properties in your BlendLuxCore installation:

Can I organize a rendering queue (Render Manager)?
The work is proceeding quickly. Renders go for a long time. The queue of files and scenes requiring rendering is accumulating. Can I do something like the addon "Render +"?

I have an addon Render +, I always use it when I'm working with Cycles.
I'll try to contact the developer. Maybe he will go to the meeting and implement the support of Luxrender.

You can use the network rendering tools for this.
In Blender, open the render properties and click the "Wiki" button near the render/animation buttons, it explains everything.
If you only want to render with one PC, you can start the master and the slave on the same PC.

You will have to export all scenes you want to render as ".bcf" files (the network render wiki page explains how), then you can add them to the network render queue.

Will the compositing nodes configured in the blender work in this case?

No.
If you need them, you can use Blender's command line interface:
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/ ... _line.html
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/ ... ments.html

As far as I know there are already some tools with graphical user interface available that can create a render queue this way.
