    Combining Processing Power of More Than One Mac

    I was in a Digital Film Editing class last year and at one point my professor made reference to the possibility of linking a bank of Mac computers together, thereby combining the processing power of all of the machines. He mentioned this in reference to the need for a lot of power when dealing with certain formats of HD video footage and I am about to be faced with a whole load of this kind of footage to edit.

    He didn't go into the specifics of this procedure and I'm having a hard time finding information.

    What I'm really looking to do is link two or three MacBookPros together and run them as one.

    Any and all insights into this matter would be considered of the utmost value.
