View Full Version : LW 9.3.1 Output Format numbering is incompatible with previous versions.

NewTek changed the numbering order of the output format for LW9.3.1.
They added new formats and changed the number order that makes it
incompatible with previous LW versions and it may cause image output
problems when people try to render scenes between this version and
older ones. This affects the "OutputFilenameFormat" setting stored in
the LW scene.

Here is a list of the affected output formats:
< LW9.3 LW9.3.1
"Name_001" 4 8
"Name_001.xxx" 5 9
"Name_0001" 6 10
"Name_0001.xxx" 7 11

If the user saves one of these output formats with LW9.3, and then
opens the scene in LW9.3.1 it will be a different format, and
vice-versa. Saving a scene with LW9.3.1, and opening the scene in
LW9.3 will always default to "Name_0001.xxx" since the number order in
the previous versions ended at "7".

NewTek should put the old numbering order back in the next release,
and assign new formats with unassigned values.

I reported this as a bug in LW9.3.1 and the latest Betas
