[REQ] Resize before sending frame to master

While I'm an absolute rookie at technical matters like this - wouldn't it be possible for the slave computer to resize the igi locally before sending the frame to the master computer, to make transfer speeds faster?

By resizing you mean the Supersampling downscaling of the rendered Data?!

The IGI file also saves each LightLayer, and can therefor become quite big, but it shouldn't be that much of a issue for network rendering over (cable connected) LAN... do you use WLAN?

At the moment there is absolutely no compression in the IGI file, every Information is saved in "RAW pixel Data".
Some zipping of the IGI file is only kicking in real good if there is some alpha Background, Material ID or region render done...
