Hello my probleme is with lighting computing in TS.

The Omni and Spot is very fast with Vray and I am very satisfied but the Area light is very slow. Does someone make an enhanced area light plugin for 7.6? I think the lighting solution is exist by Spot and Omni and maybe it is convertable to new Area light with soft shadow. Because If I make an interior scene is OK but it is too slow for animation.

Just a comment..

The problem that Arealight is sensitive more slower than spot or omni lights is because area light emmits light from many diferent points of that area..
Omni light and spots.. the light only comes from just 1 source..

In my custimization you can change the samples.. lower values lower quality but better render times.. For tests samples is the most important value and if you need quality renders thats the value too...

All depends on what you need, and for what..

Im many cases fake arealight with omni or spot is a good solution, but sometimes Arealight is a must..

Cheers and have a good rendering! :)
