We were under assumption that in Corona 4 Lightmix recognizes Corona lights in Xrefs and created the proper Lightmix layers according to the choices we made (instances,  etc .....)
In corona 5, lightmix does not recognize Corona lights in Xrefs. I have looked on the forum and helpdesk but could not find any related posts.
So, or we are wrong, or this is a bug?

So after some testing I was unable to make light-mix to work through xref for Corona 4 HF1, the light was loaded as an xref scene along with a sphere, while the lights are being imported the light-select elements report no light assigned to them hence not able to alter any value. Plus you are not able to attach the x-ref lights.

Now I don't know if there is a workaround for this I will investigate further. Also attaching my xref-lightmix setup if you want to test.

Than I assume, we are wrong.
