Cinelerra (can't vouch for it and don't even know whether it's open
source, if you're one of the purists in the crowd) has a render farm
"feature" (Blender, I believe, now includes a network rendering addon).

I suppose (perhaps erroneously) that once you have a working lan set up
the cluster farm (I almost said something else!) shouldn't be too
arduous to configure.

Maybe not up to Pixar snuff, but I would think many video rendering
softs include some kind of distributed rendering feature these days
(although I wouldn't really know, as I ain't a renderer myself).

Bonne chance.
