Hi Friends,
I wanted to use the CATS program to download the raw frames from my project which finished rendering this morning. When I started CATS my session didn't show up in the list of recently completed renders. Is there a delay before the session shows up in the session list. Thanks for your assistance.

BURP is fantastic by the way!

No, in fact it should show up as gray at the top of the list even while rendering so that you can start downloading even though the rest of it is still active on the farm. When done rendering it will turn white and will be just below the gray ones.

You can always use the top right search bar to search for the session id (2830), your user id (296672) or the session name ("Dark"...).

If you've had CATS open for a long time the session list may have become out-of-date. It refreshes from time to time by itself but you can always hit F5 or select View->Refresh to update it.

Ok, I restarted CATS and hit f5 and the highest render session number listed is 2827. My session is/was 2830. I was able to download the highres output file fine this AM, just not able to see the frames. Not a crisis as I can postprocess from the hires file output. Session 2830 doesn't show up in the "Your recent sessions" in the session gallery either, but I'm seeing a listing for session 2831 in the "Other Recent Sessions" section of the gallery. 2831 doesn't show up in CATS either. Do I need to download the jar file again?

Thanks!

Could you post a screenshot of the list of sessions in CATS (or alternatively just write the top 15 session ids) - I'd like to compare it to what the server log says it sent.

Did you try the search?

Most of CATS's functionality is on the server, no need to download the JAR again. Just have to narrow this down a bit to figure out if there is a bug somewhere.

Ok. it's showing up now in my Session Gallery and it is actually in the CATS list. Just down a ways. I expected the listing to be in sequential order with my session near the top in Cats and my session showed up down the list for whatever reason. No further action necessary.

Thanks!
