Is it only me who feels that TDM is only half-way there? Here's my setup, one MP that does an awful lot of Compressor renders (NTSC HD to PAL HD at best quality). Each render takes around 6 hours at 100% CPU, so any other work I need to do takes away CPU cycles and increases the render times. Other work includes loading drives with video files, very simple editing in FCP, laying down subtitle files and mail/internet. So when I read about TDM I had this 'brilliant' idea, buy a top iMac for all the FCP, Mail, Safari stuff...the day to day running of my empire and use the MP for all those 24/7 renders. Then using TDM I can hook up the MP to the iMac and see everything going on with the renders. That is the problem, I can only 'see' what's going on, I cannot send commands to the software, I have no keyboard/mouse control. I think TDM is a brilliant idea, but just not properly thought through. I don't see why it should not be possible to 'hand over' the keyboard/mouse to the other computer when the command is sent to display the other computer screen. I know I could have multiple screens, multiple keyboards/mice, but I don't have the space and I resent using more energy than I have to. I would still have to address the where's and how's of all my storage, which is currently mainly inside the MP and via an esata box. My video editing doesn't require huge bandwidth. I'd welcome any constructive comments.
