Why can\'t I get more data from this session? It says that it is only 25% done, yet I can\'t get any more data. When I try to connect it says that there is no more work availible.

Look at the bottom left box on this page, it says:

Waiting: 0 parts
Renderspeed: 0 ppm

As I can tell from your join date and credits you should have observed this many times before, so I assume you should know the answer: Janus currently renders \"stop-and-go\" and only releases new WUs when he has something new to test. This has been announced quite a while ago.

That\'s right, and right now we\'ve stopped because the output looks weird... I suspect this has something to do with the input file, though, not the software.
Well I\'ll just send out the remaining WUs for that session and try another one soon.

The good thing is that our new wrapper-code (the client) seems to do very well indeed.

Looks like the background is black when it should be sky. Maybe related to alpha channel? Could be that background has the sky color but alpha set to transparent.

You can even see the blue sky reflected on the metallic balls. May have been a mistake in the settings as you say but it gave a nice effect IMO

And God said"Let there be light."But then the program crashed because he was trying to access the 'light' property of a NULL universe pointer.

There\'s more than that - the two pendulum balls are only visible on very few frames.
Maybe the effect of using an old Blender version is starting to shine through. If the file was made for something newer than Blender 2.37a it may not work at all.
But making the new Blender work with BURP is exactly what is going to be looked at next.

Hmm, will the Session be rendered again, when the newer Blender-Version is supported?

Would indeed seem like a good idea.

New BURP patched Blender is compiling at the moment and is scheduled to be run through the internal test farm later today when the code has cooled down a bit. I imagine that we\'ll rerun 201 as soon as there\'s no other tests to do.
