Maintain point cloud weight while using DR


I'm using Microstation to render some longer animations and I'd like to use the built in Distributed Rendering capability but I've noticed that the specific weight that I have applied to the points is not maintained by the other DR nodes.  If I record and use "current session", only the JPEGs coming from the current session have the correct point weight--all the others are (I assume) at a value of 1.  I imagine I am missing something obvious and would appreciate any tips to figure this out.  Thanks!
