Condor does not look in subdirectories when transfering
files back at the end of the job. 


- tell Blender to put the jpg files in the execute/ directory,
and not execute/temp

- write a wrapper script that either copies the files from
temp/ to the top-level directory at the end of the job, or 
zips up the temp/ directory at the end of the job

- write to a shared filesystem

I'm not sure if transfer_output_files understands 
subdirectories or not, but I _think_ you can say
transfer_output_files = temp/frame_001.jpg, temp/frame_002.jpg, <...>
etc etc and the right thing happens (but again, I'm not sure)
