Need some help here. Say I have already rendered out to a 5000 frame TIFF sequence of a heavily effected project (lots of effects, dynamic links, etc.). A week later we then need to make some FX changes to frames 900-1000 WITHOUT changing overall duration.
I thought it would be just like After Effects that renders out sequences with the frame number attached. Overwrite the old 0900-1000 numbered clips without having to rerender everything else. Problem solved.
But I can't seem to get Premiere to do anything but start its numbering from zero--even if I want to render out starting on frame 900. I'm expecting frame 900 to look like MOVIE_0900.TIF, but instead it ALWAYS starts at MOVIE_0000.TIF. So it's overwriting the files I DON'T want to overwrite.
Catch my drift?
Any way to fix this? I dont' see any options to name based on frame number.
A work around might be to export to a different folder, use Bridge to Batch Rename while Moving to the correct folder, thus overwriting the proper files.
So I take it there's no way to do this from within Premiere? It will ALWAYS start at 0?
I should make the feature request page a bookmark since I seem to be on it every day. Before I do, though, is this the final answer? It will always start at zero?

You can phone a friend, but that's the final answer. Renaming the files is about the only way to do this immediately.
I'm biased against Bridge, so I use my favorite file-renaming utility, ReNamer, for such tasks.
