modify hardware render file output

i would like to use hardware render to render some particle, but i can't set the file name like" name_0001.ext" because no selection for that. so is there anyway to modify the ext column or change the output format?
thanks

I'm guessing you want the Frame Padding setting?
It's right below Frame/Animation ext. In your case it should be set to 4.
Or did I misunderstand?

Cheers!

not the frame padding
it is about frame/animation ext

in maya render setting you can select "name_#.ext" in the frame animation ext column

but if you use hardware render you can't select "name_#.ext" because no option for that
all you can select is "name.1.ext" , "name.ext.0001" or something else

i think the only way to solve this problem is to rewrite the maya script or somthing, but i have no idea where is that?
And that is my problem...

are you using the hardware render buffer or the simple hardware/hardware2.0 renderers ? For the latter, your 'common' options should be exactly the same as the standard ones, including name_#.ext


For the hardware render buffer I guess you don't have too much choice; I recommend http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php for renaming files.
