It would be extremely useful if Encoder could automatically split a non-live job, disperse 'sections' to other machines, which then encode their section and hand back to be rejoined.
An encoding farm.....

Already running this with a HPC cluster doing the grunt work but the jobs aren't spilt they are just handed to different cluster nodes, complete jobs at a time.
Great if you have a lot of jobs, but what I was looking at was spilting individual jobs up and sharing the load between different systems then rejoining them.
