The routine now prints out the following at very close to the very end of
executing the script:

==== MaxScript Processing Complete ====

The code to detect the end of maxscript processing in execute.pm was also
modified accordingly to search for that particular string.

@TWEAK: added a little more info to be printed to the log

@FIX: better support for v-ray frame buffer renders, including saving to "split render channels" files

@CHANGE: added "INFO: " to print for most informational logs, for consistency and readability.

@INTERNAL: The "outputfile" internal variable which was used to test the validity of each frame's output file, has been changed to an array "outputfiles" so there may be multiple output files per frame (as is the case for when v-ray splite render channels is enabled)
