Just a quick remark here that the tutorial applies to:
1. Presto engine only and
2. You need version 1.4.02 (and above).

Thanks, very interesting feature!!
The Extended Tracing options appears only when you are in the Viewport if you change to Darkroom these features disappear, my question is, the chosen options of Extended Tracing are retained when you change to the darkroom?

both A0 and MC have those options in production for me
