Hey is there already an ability to actually see what you are rendering? Would be nice cause now my computer is just doing something, don't know what :D

Maybe an option to save a copy of a frame would be cool in a further status or just a screensaver with the picutere you are currently working on. Will finished animations be published?

Plan is that you will be able to see what you have rendered when the workunits have gotten their credit granted. This isn't implemented yet.
So a workunit like this will show an image of what was actually returned.

The final animation will be downloadable in several formats, so you can pick out the frames that you helped do and download them or you can download the entire animation as avi/mpeg/mpeg4.

As long as the image gallery is still in development I will post links to finished animations on the front page (we should soon see one when the last frames get back).

With regards to the screensaver you can see (and add) some ideas in this thread about the screensaver.
