Hey, this may be a silly question,
but I'm not a 3D artist, so maybe you guys can guide me.

I have this project that I need to export from C4D to AE in a TIFF Sequence.

The problem is that I it's a 12000 frame sequence. For After Effects to recognize the frame order, I need this entire sequence to have the following filename model: "sequence_#####.Tif"

What C4D seems to do is to render frames 0 to 9999 as "sequence_####.Tif"
and the remaining frames as "sequence_#####.Tif" which doesn't work in AE.

The only solution that everybody's giving me is to rename everything in Bridge. I just refuse to believe that nobody ever renders long sequences in c4d, and I can't find any frame padding options... any pointers ?

I'm using R12 by the way,
thanks !

I'm not sure if there's a way around it in C4D, but why not just render it in two 6000 frame sequences and stick them together in AE?

Or better yet, just take your existing render and import it as two sequences and then butt them together in AE?
