Is there any clipping warning tool I'm not aware in Corona? Similar to highlight and shadow clipping warnings in Camera Raw or force color clamping in V-ray? Anything that enables clear clipping visualization inside VFB?

Should I say clipping or clamping? :)

Anyway, is there a visual way to tell if I'm having shadow and highlight clipping/clamping areas directly on the VFB?

Well, if you really need this, you can sorta hack it. Open curves editor in VFB, change interpolation to linear splines, and adjust green and blue channels like in attached picture. Now you'll have purple colour for highlights clipping and blue for shadows.

P.S. you can enlarge curve editor by clicking and dragging over its edge, so that it would make easier to fine tune clipping points.

P.P.S. there is a bug, when changing channels or resetting changes, doesn't update interpolation status - i will report it as a bug.

P.P.P.S. you could request proper clipping indicators implementation in VFB, i think that would totally make sense ;] Ah crap, you already did :]
