Am I right in thinking that RTMac only does Rt for 3 or so layers?
What I'd like to see is the Xserve combined a a new type of OS X distributed processing built in. We have 15 G4s in our college studio and the biggest pain in the a*s is when students have to wait for stuff to render. Typically by the time its finished the lesson has ended!
It would be great if you could just hit "Render" in any app and OS X sends that to the Xserve which then starts rendering using itself and any macs unused at the time leaving your machine completely free for other stuff. When its done it could just automatically send it straight back to you. No network or file managment - it would just be like sending something to print over the network.
Or have I missed something?

Xserve deck + rendevous + FCP = fun
That should be possible. thats apparently one of the sales points of the x serves
don't know well it works tho, will be interesting to find out!

The only way to speed up FCP is to get a faster machine.
Matrox's RTMac doesn't speed up rendering at all. And it's not (and guess it will never be) OS X compatiable
