Got some new work, thanks.

They seem to behave oddly. The first one was estimated at 1:51:01. It quickly counted up to 100% and then the percent started over. There are no errors in the log. It\'s done this twice more now and is up to 80+% for the fourth time after 14 minutes.

... And ... bingo. Started over again.

Is this wu really starting over, implying it will never end, or is this odd but normal behavior?

It\'s normal behavior. No need to worry.

If the Scene has Motion-Blur, it has to be rendered multiple times. The WUs take about 1 hour to finish.

That behaviour is normal. Search this forum for more information (sorry but I\'m not going to explain it the 20th time...).

Thanks. I\'ve run BURP in the past and never noticed that. I should have done a more thorough site search. Sorry.
