[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). But...

If you have hqueue installed (not difficult and included in the install package for HFX) you can submit a job that way and let it handle the process. It will pickup dropped frames and resubmit them automatically. 

mostly use it for distributing jobs to the other PCs in my apartment (laptop, old computer, iPhone, X-Box).
