Hello,
A command-line rendering option for Pro, similar to that available with the other apps we support in our render farm (Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D & After Effects), would be great. Our render farm software allows us to manage computing resources as well as users (in groups with associated permissions/priorities and file-servers) in a fine-grained manner. Command-line support is a pre-requisite for incorporation into the system. A minimum set of switches to enable this would be something like:

-- UNC path to scene file
-- UNC path to output directory
-- starting frame
-- ending frame
-- anything else not stored in the scene file (gpu vs. cpu ?)

Thanks for considering this,
Scott
