I exposed the "direct light sampling type" parameter in the emission node.
You can use it to explicitly enable/disable direct light sampling of a mesh light.
Why you might need this is explained in the tooltips:
  • auto: "Direct light sampling is disabled if the mesh has more than 256 triangles"
  • enabled:
    "Enable direct light sampling: Trace a shadow ray for each triangle of this mesh (expensive if mesh has many faces). Use this option if the mesh has more than 256 triangles and is the primary light source in the scene"
  • disabled:
    "Disable direct light sampling: Improves rendering performance of highpoly light emitters if they contribute only little light to the scene"
Default is "auto", like before.

I'm working on a statistics panel that shows some stats and settings of a render slot.

You can also compare two slots.
If you have ideas about missing stats you'd like to see there, or about functionality, post a comment.

Also is it possible to have an equivalent of cycles facing node ?

It is planned, yes.

I think this would have to be implemented into LuxCore (maybe as a texture?), I can look into it.

Really good and useful.
I've seen that you add a cyclic mode and now you make me eager ( :mrgreen: ) to have more modes like ping-pong and a reverse mode, do you think it's doable ??
