    Force start frame number in image sequence render

    joe bloe premiere Level 5

      I have a 900 frame comp rendered to a numbered image sequence.
      After applying a revision to frames 250-300, I would like to render
      only those frames, overwriting the originals.

       

      I have tried:
      Under >Render Settings, "Work Area Only", with "Skip existing files" off.
      This renders the correct frames as designated by the Work Area Bar,
      but the frame numbering begins at 1 instead of 250.

       

      Under >Render Settings, "Custom", with "Skip existing files" off.
      In the Custom fields, I specify frames 250-300.
      This renders the correct frames as designated by the Custom setting,
      but the frame numbering still begins at 1 instead of 250.

       

      Using both of the above settings, I have also tried to "force" a start frame
      in the Output Module by manually entering "filename_[00250]".
      The result is a new 51 frame sequence starting with "filename_[00250]_00001".

       

      How can I get a partial render to overwrite the correctly
      numbered original frames in an image sequence?
