[Sidefx-houdini-list] H-queue Option

I work on projects at home a lot so this might not work in a fixed pipeline (studio render farm etc..), but...

If you have hqueue installed to your own single computer (not difficult and included in the install package for HFX) you can submit a job and let it handle the process. It will pickup dropped frames,  resubmit them automatically, and can even send you a message when it's done, or has errors. 

I mostly use it for distributing jobs around our house, both of our laptops, an old computer, my iPhone, the X-Box, the toaster oven... 

Give it a shot. Hope it helps.
