Renderfarm and Cineform

I'm currently using a single an i7 990x as my "workstation" computer but I want to speed up the workflow by building an small personal render farm (mostly for After Effects CS5 - non 3D - 1080p or less). I have been wanting to do this for some time but now having lots of spare parts and some decent CPU's on hand (several Core 2 quads, an i5-2500K, an i7 920), I should be able to do this within a small definable budget.

Given I have 1 license (Neo/Cineform Studio Premium) - allowed on 2 machines, I'm assuming I have to buy additional licenses for the "other nodes" on my system? Is this correct?

How will this work in regards to setup, install and use with Cineform? First Light? Does it even matter, considering AE treats network renders sequentially as still frame images rather than movie files?

If anyone's done this before I like to hear your input and perhaps some advice. Thanks.

Re: Renderfarm and Cineform

If your blades do not need to encode to CineForm, your existing licenses are sufficient. You can install CineForm Studio Premium/Pro on all systema for full decoding capabilities within your NLE/Compositors.
