Can I use smadge for rendering nuke script (for example) having NUKE software installed only on my master machines?
Or I need a fully Nuke application installed for every machines in the network?

the same question for software like AtoC4D or others.

thanks in advance..

The rendering application must be able to be executed and must able to check out whatever licenses it needs to do its work. In other words, Smedge does not actually do any rendering itself, and only controls third party rendering applications, which must be installed and running normally.

Most people do install the renderers locally, and license them appropriately. It is possible to run many renderers from a network location, but you will still need to ensure that the licensing is set up correctly, and that the paths and components needed to run the renderer work normally on the render node itself, as if the rendering software was locally installed.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you,
