View Full Version : sequential files saving

05 May 2002, 01:12 AM
well from the title you can guess this is a small question about output sequence numbering styles..

the default style is: "sequence.[##].tga"

though when numbering the files it doesnt start with a "001" but with a "1"
this used to work fine with combustion 1, but now i am using combustion 2 it doesnt seem to stitch the files together and gives me a sequence of only the frames with double digit numbers ...

can i change the way XSI outputs the numbers to allow for 001 or 01 instead of a lonly "1"

or are there any programs that change the format for me?
please :(

unfortunately I don't think you can do it directly in XSI

All you can do is import your render sequence in the flipbook (you can load it as a standalone launching flip.exe in the 'bin' folder), and then export your sequence. Infact in the flipbbook you can set the 'padding' you want (you can manually modify the number of #).

Hope this helps
