Run Scene Collection
Added new 'Run Scene Collection' button for invoking manual scene collection in Maya scenes.
The automatic scene collections that happen when Maya Scenes are saved/loaded/changed have been removed.
Users should now click the 'Run Scene Collection' button when they need the Komotion front-end to sync with the Komotion Rig(s) in the Maya Scene.
This change has been implemented to allow users to render large completed scenes, without the need for collecting Komotion Rigs.
