The number of digit is imposed by the value of final_frame. If it have 6 
digits, then the files names will end with 6 digits.

Normaly, I never set final_frame to a large and use a subset. Only 
setting the final_frame value normaly works very well.

Simply using +kff20500 or +kff20501 on the command line start the 
animation for the desired number of frames.

BMPs are huge for nothing as they are not compressed in any way. It's 
highly recomended to set the output format to PNG. Use +fn in an ini 
file or the command line, or way beter, upgrade to version 3.7RC whitch 
default to PNG on all platforms.
