Session jammed? The task has 14 replications and is not validated. http://burp.renderfarming.net/workunit.php?wuid=3233367

Seems so - it looks very noisy. Switching to best-effort mode. Credit will of course be granted even for the units marked as incorrect.

Ironically, artists tend to use as few samples as possible to save time. But when rendering on BURP with Cycles the noise will actually cause the session to become slower because it cannot validate.
The trick is to use deterministic noise or to use more samples (up to a certain limit, of course - there are diminishing returns) to avoid the noise in the first place and then add back noise afterwards if required.

Comment to the author:
This looks awesome! Now we just need a fly-by animation ;)
In the future: Try using a deterministic sampling method on the camera or use more samples.
The resolution you put into the x/y input fields inside Blender is the one that will be used. The % field is not used.

Messed up with simplify >_< and forgot to set proper resolution without percentage. Dammit.
