Specific Image Sequence Numbering

Post by Gochris1 » 23 Aug 2017, 00:00

Hello:

I want to create an image sequence that would look like this:
TVP.0000.PNG
TVP.0001.PNG
TVP.0002.PNG

and on and on...

But when I export, TVP will create files named
TVP.0000
TVP.0001
TVP.0002
TVP.0003

but there is no .PNG extension.

How can I export files in this format?
TVP.0000.PNG
TVP.0001.PNG
TVP.0002.PNG

Thanks
Gochris

I am using Windows 7

You may already know that every file has to have an extension for it to be read. On a Mac you have the option to show or hide the extension. It has been a long time but I recall Windows having this option as well.

Is there a particular window within TVPaint you are able to see these sequenced files without the extension?

When you Import through File => Open/Import you can see the extension displayed even when you have hidden checked in the Finder on a Mac.

On my Mac TVP creates these filenames (with double points) without problems.

A word of caution though: while these filenames may work in your current situation, they may cause trouble in any larger and especially in a mixed environment. To avoid trouble, restrict file names to:
A-Z
0-9
-_
Avoid using /|\,. as they are delimiters in several file systems, avoid "special characters" like äöüßçé as they may break during transfer or are refused by other programs, and never ever have two files like IMAGE.png and image.png since some file systems threat this as the same file.

Hi Gochris1,

On Windows 7, if you open the Control Panel, then "Folder options", then go in the "View tab", then scroll down, you should see an option named "Hide Extensions for known file types":
hide_extensions.png
Uncheck this box, and the .png extension will appear on the files :)
