I could add the checkbox too.

BTW: it is implemented in a dumb way for now, so it is crucial to keep the number of polygons with portal mtl very low. That means make single plane per one window with several window tiles, it is better if some portion of the portal is obstructed, than if there is different polygon in each window segment.

one of the sexiest things in corona was.. that it didn't need to use those damn portals :)

With portals change and lighting, interior becomes lighter. What is considered as a etalon lighting with portals or without?

Yes, brightening is weird. Also, you should be aware that in recent builds, sun intensity is broken ;)

I haven't noticed any brightness differences so far either. Portal lowers rays/s a little but helps a lot :)

If you are using HDcache, then you can get random fluctuations in the brightness every time you render. Additionally, with the default setting of Max sample intensity above 0, there is some light energy clamped to remove fireflies. If you are using portals, you have less noise overall -> less fireflies get clamped -> image is brighter.
