Hey John,

The network rendering is going to be a no-go over a given number of frames per second. I've had bad luck network rendering via TCP/IP. If you really need to do the render over ethernet then you'll need to do it with iSCSI. On a mac the only thing you can use as a DIY-rig is Studio Network Solutions iSCSI target and use an iSCSI initiator. SNS has an initiator as well as Atto. I've only used the Atto. SNS makes the target host software. Not too expensive, cheaper then fibre channel which is what you should probably be using. You'll get much better performance with 4gig FC then you likely will with 10gbe, however, a FC SAN is an undertaking.

In the interim you should experiment with throttling down the render speed... don't go max render performance in Resolve. If you are chugging out a lot of FPS then likely there's some packet loss or rejection. Ethernet is made to be resilient first, performance is second. Using iSCSI will give you a more reliable connection to the storage for what you are trying to do.
