I am going to be buying about 5 mid-class pentium 4 machines to put them on a gigabit switch and use them as a cluster for video editing. I know that Adobe After Effects supports rendering with a cluster, but does Adobe Premiere Pro 2 support a cluster? Basically...i want the cluster to be used for all rendering...even previewing my work on the timeline. Can this be done?
Also, im curious as to how these two setups would compete:
AMD F-62 Dual Core
4 gig RAM
5 x Pentium 4 2.4 GHz 512Meg
Basically...should i go for a huge explosive single machine...or go with a cluster of average pentium 4s?
