    Hey,

    I'm going to buy a mac for video editing. I know that there's a function with final cut studio with which you can use other mac's to render your movie (at least in compressor). So here's my question: should I buy an iMac to render movies, or 2 mac mini's. I think the iMac would be nice, but you can't use it in a cluster. But two mac mini's can be placed in a cluster, so will that be faster than one iMac? And can I render in final cut pro with two mac's, or is compressor only supporting that function. Please let me know.

    So far, Compressor is the only app in the FCS package that can take advantage of clusters.
