Adobe Media Encoder Separate Build

Hello everybody,

 

I'm a musician and a video editor (for weddings, private events and stuff like this). For private events 90% percent of the time I work in 1080p50 but for my youtube videos and personal videos as a musician I work in 4k25. 

My main machine for editing is an 16" MacBook Pro 2019, 8-core i9 , 16gb of ram and the 4gb radeon video card. For editing is just fine, I've refined my workflow to my needs (altough I always find something to improve).

 

But my main concern is the encoding, sometimes I have to encode 2-3 videos per day (one of them having 4-7 hours). I don't want to kill my main machine with those tasks . So I was thinking to build another workstation for encoding (sharing the projects on a shared drive so AME can have access to all the files, everything wired on Gigabit connection, working to upgrade on 10gb).

 

My idea for this new build because when it doesn't render I want to use it for other simple tasks, is to run a linux distro, passthrough the gpu to a VM with AME installed and let this machine to do the pull for the encoding sessions. 

So my questions are : 

1. How high should I spec this second build ? (Xeon e3 series ? 16gb / 32gb of ram ? Is it worth to go ECC ? Nvidia quadro or the professional radeon series ? ) 

2. I'm paying for the complete Creative Cloud, can I install AME on that second build ?

3. I've also read a little about the After Effects render farm capabilities can I use this second build to help my main machine when I'm rendering in AE ? 


Thanks in advance !
