Hey Jordan,

Just out of curiosity, which program are you using to handle the render 
? I'm currently rendering directly from Houdini.  I didn't search too 
much but I haven't seen the option to render all the takes of the same 
node in one go. Or is it automatic as soon as you have nmultiple takes ? 
In that case can we disable takes from being rendered ?
