What is the method of rendering directly to a DPS/Leitch Velocity system creating a dps file?

The old DPS systems used to ceate pseudo directories of image sequence files, which could be written to, so you could create a 'dummy' vid file giving you a directory of black frames & then save to it - overwriting the dummies.
But AFAIK a bit of trial and tragic error eventually leads everyone to settle for rendering image sequences then importing them into whatever playback/storage system they use.
Rendering straight to any animation files always ends in tears when a frame drops, or any other small error occurs and you trash the whole render sequence.
