    Thanks to all those who took the time to offer their wisdoms….

    Yeah, i remember doing a watch folder sequential-frames rendering in after effects… it worked well, and was satisfying somehow to get all those idles machines ganged together to get the task done.

    It’s a shame this is not more effortless. I will keep trying, and do a H264 experiment, once i get the machines to cluster. and only then! oughhhh

    One of the requirements is both machines need to be on the same version of Quicktime.

    I had the same issues you guys did; couldn’t get compressor or QMASTER to work.

    Here is the key:

    Export your project as a quicktime movie.

    Setup a cluster and nodes following this setup:

    I occasionally have to restart services on the computers, but that is totally worth the time savings.

    Awesome, now if I could just bring on a couple of windows machines for this, that would really make my day.. Only have two MacBookPro’s. And two windows based servers, one of which is an hp proliant with 4 dual core xeon processors rocket ship. Sure would be nice to tap that for FCP. I use it for vegas, and rendering time is significantly reduced. but I think I find FCP slightly easier to use especially for key framing. But thats just me. Vegas was my starter and I know it pretty well, still a little new to FCP.
