Best way to determine whether you'll see any benefit is to fire up Activity Monitor when you're encoding and see how much of your RAM is being used. If all of it is being used, then you would certainly see some sort of speed bump by upgrading.
However, I can state with some level of certainty that adding more RAM will only result in a nominal increase in performance as encoding is CPU intensive. So encoding times go down with increase clock speed, something you can't change with your Macbook Pro.
