I\'m getting some fresh WU :-)))

It took a few minutes to download all files but now is running fine.

Seems this session misses its background (sky) again?

I\'ve been looking into it and I think it may be a consequence of using RGBA - the sky is then considered background and is alphaed away. Any Blender people able to confirm this? And find a cure?

I just saw the video file (hightest quality; movie_mpeg4_q96.avi), and you can see the blue sky.

Good point indeed, didn\'t notice that before. It seems the image previewer that generates the previews on the webpage has a bug in it then. Good catch!
This bug also affects sessions with multipart rendering enabled. Like the Little ball game session.

Does the image preview uses PNG? I think I remember reading that PNG suport was broken in MS Internet Explorer (transparencies/alpha I think), so it might have something to do with it.

It does, but it breaks already before reaching the browser.

Ok, I rewrote the image preview code to support the additional alpha layers, so sessions without multipart rendering but with RGBA enabled will now also appear correctly in the session gallery.
(You may have to force your browser to update your cache, though).

Sessions with multipart rendering and RGBA enabled (which is a must for multipart rendering to work) will still appear to have missing background untill I fix the image stitching software.
