is it possible to change the naming scheme of a rendered PNG sequence to use a hyphen instead of a underscore?

example:
currently it renders as "compname_00001.png" and I want it to render as "compname-00001.png"

Its not a lot of work to batch rename afterwards, but a lot of game engines prefer something other than underscore and its just one of those little things I've manually been doing for years instead of looking for a smarter way.

thanks

oh. I had looked in there but foolishly not while I had a PNG sequence preset selected. its really obvious once the render is set up. thanks for the guidance.

As an aside, Adobe BRidge allows you to batch rename files. Google "adobe bridge file rename" to reach a few good URLs on the subject.

Ben

Open the Prefs File in After Effects Folder and then

Search for say "number"

and

Change
“Sequence number prefix” = “_”
to
“Sequence number prefix” = “."
