But they all look shit compared to Unreal post process tab :- D I don't know how those guys do it, but every feature is miles above everything else.
The tonemapping and post effects look so good and natural straight out of box it makes every rendering engine look like from 1995 :/

Really? I never actually noticed that. The good thing is: UE is open source, so it should be an "easy" thing to have a look how it's done :P
Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.

Can you turn off any pop up windows, please, when DR rendering started on the rendernode? Like a "silent" mode ))
It is for use rendernode for simple tasks, like Word, Autocad, browsing internet and so on for other people.

unfortunately that is up to autodesk, and they made it so that 3dsmax cannot run without its UI
Rendering is magic.

It can run without UI. This is solved in Vray via that thing (DR spawner starts as service, not the process). Maybe this is possible in Corona too?

For Cinema4d
Live Preview like Octane or Maxwell Fire would be awesome!

Progressive Rendering in Network rendering like Maxwell
(http://support.nextlimit.com/display/maxwelldocs/Progressive+Rendering+Workflow)

Maxwell can be configured to allow the render servers to render a complete sequence at (n) passes -
For example (6,12,24)

The whole sequence will finish to render each file at 6 passes (at a low Sampling Level) and move to the next frame. When the whole sequence is complete it will then RESUME the render from 6 to 12 (does not need to re-render the already 6 passes) and save each, finally it will render the passes from 12 -24

In this way you can already use the sequence in compositing at a lower quality while the higher quality is in progress

Dispersion is on my wishlist as well, especially for glass closeup shots.

If you are in need for dispersion now, there is the physical workaround:
Render the beauty Pass without Caustics
Render a black and white Pass for with caustics only, which corrensponds to the IOR of the wavelength or Red
Render a black and white Pass for with caustics only, which corrensponds to the IOR of the wavelength or Green
Render a black and white Pass for with caustics only, which corrensponds to the IOR of the wavelength or Blue

Set the Channel Color for these to the corresponding colors. And add them on top in Photoshop for a photo or in a compsitor for Video.

???

Profit with dispersion. Same works for refraction. (although you would have to do it infinitly for all the colors, you can also do with 5 colors, including Yellow and Purple)
