  Feature request: append characters before frame number in animation (Message 1 to 4 of 4)

Currently, when one renders an animation, POV-Ray simply appends a 
number to the end of the file. I request that we can insert an 
underscore or hyphen between the file name and the frame number so that

image0, image1, image2

become

image_9, image_1, image_2

etc.


Thanks!


Michael

Why donít you just specify the output filename with all the characters you want
in it?

What do you mean? Not a lot of options are described here:

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:File_Output_Options#Output_File_Name

Also, I have dozens of scenes and don't want to configure the INI file 
for each scene.

Well, instead of default -Ofoo

you could use "-Ofoo_", and with animation on, get foo_01.png

povray +Ifoo.pov -Ofoo_ +KFI0 +KFF11
