Ok so just came accurst this ability, and i think its pretty cool,,, But here is my question,, is it faster to render the video as a JPEG or PSD or a PSD, than place them back into AF to Render into a Video,,, The reason why i ask is because i don't want to waist the time on rendering if its longer, or is basically the same,,,

Would Run 2 Computers, iMac (MAIN) CS6 16gb ram 2gb video card
other is a Win 7 8gb HD 1gb 3d video card

not the worlds best but it gets the job done,,, ;) Please let me know.. Thanks in advance!

The answer is... it depends.

If your comp is very computationally intense, then the time overhead of a network render can be worthwhile. If not, then the network and storage overhead of network render may actually make your whole process slower. You'd have to test to know for sure.

One thing I'll point out is that you can import an image sequence into Adobe Media Encoder for output, so you may not need the extra step in Ae of stitching together the movie.
