That is indeed interesting, and also, have you looked at cinelerra?

It does not use MPI but has it's own client/server videorenderingfarm 
infrastructure, and could probably be adapted to the beowulf model, with 
the gui running on the headnode and the compute nodes simply encoding 
part of the video.
