Animation Frames without 0000


everytime I create the frames of my animation as png, blender creates filenames like 0001.png, 0002.png, 0003.png,…

Is there a way to say blender to name my files 1.png, 2.png, 3.png,…?


That is the naming convention for saving animation sequence files. I suppose it’s named that way so that the filename is easier to parse. As far as I know it can’t be changed. It’s not that hard to work with, especially if you are using the Blender Sequence editor. Other applications that can support the loading and handling of sequence images shouldn’t have a problem with this naming convention either.
