    Can you use Premier Media Encoder on a seperate machine?

    complete-grp Level 1

      I'm running premier pro (cs4) on my laptop (win7) and it runs really great, but the rendering is pretty slow.

      I'd prefer to save the project and then somehow run the media encoder on my more powerful workstation.


      Obviously i don't want to buy a second license of Premier. Is there a way of running Premier on the laptop, sending some kind of export file to a network folder and then running it through Media Encoder on the workstation?


      I guess this would involve just installing Media Encoder on the workstation, is that possible?


      Hope that makes sense.


      Considering the Laptop is a quadcore and the workstation is an 8 core this could potentially half my rendering time.
