Hi, have a look at http://xmlrpc.burp.renderfarming.net/img_handler.php?session=1121&frame=28 On the image is next to the hole (on right side) small white/gray flower. If you zoom to 1to1 pixel ratio, you will see three white dots. Is it burned my monitor, or they are realy there?

they are really there... compare it with other frames, dots are moving;)
it could be an error or part of a glitter effect?!

I've now had a very close look at the flower issue and the white dots appear to only be there in the jpeg and PNG previews generated for the website - the dots are not in the raw OpenEXR material which will be used to create the final movie.

The same problem occours in this image from session 1171. As you can see below there is a big difference between the preview (left) and the raw material (right):
