Submit-Maya-Tile Script

Sometimes a single frame takes so long to render, it's difficult to get decent feedback when tweaking the lights or objects in a scene. In such a case, it's desirable to have multiple machines render different parts of the frame as 'tiles' that can quickly get comped together.

'submit-maya-tile' submits a single maya frame to multiple machines by splitting the image up into 'tiles' and rendering them separately, and then using ImageMagick's 'montage' command to composite the tiles together into a single image. It does this by submitting a multiple frame Rush job, such that each 'rush frame' works on a different tile of the image, and the last frame comps all the tiles together into a single image.
