I am doing an animation with Terragen’s rendering system (I need to use it because it can generate such good, animatable skys) and I can’t just let my computer sit and render, it is a laptop that I take to work every day, so it needs to be turned off and turned back on, which means that I have to re-start the rendering. I delete the commands for the frames that are done from the script file.
The problem is that the frame counter re-starts at frame 1 when you start to render again, which generates files starting at 1. Which means that I will have to manually re-name each of the 3000+ frames!
Is there any way to preserve the frame counter? Is there any way to batch re-name a set of files into a numbered sequence?
Please HELP! Otherwise I will be forced to abandon the animation.
