I expect this won't be easy to find, but thought I would ask if anyone has any suggestions, either off or on campus.....

I'm looking for a place where I could render a 3.5TB of video files
preferably in Windows (or OSX) environment with a little, free application
called Redcine. On our quad-core system it goes 2 frames per second, which
would take 50 days to finish... If we had access to 20-50 windows
computers, we could do it in a day or two.

Please let me know if anybody can help us.

Best regards,
