so here is the problem I am having. I have a particle simulation and I have the motion exactly how I want it. However it is about 3 times slower then it needs to be. I figured that it would be easier to keep the same particle motion and just render every 3rd frame to get the speed I need. However when Lightwave renders in steps the file names aren't numbered sequentially, so when I try to convert the frames to a movie file it won't let me because whatever program I use doesn't see the frames as a sequence.

Has anyone found an easy way to get around this problem when rendering in steps?

I haven't experienced that personally but what you can do in Windows is select all of the frames, rename them all to the same, and it will automatically append a (1) and (2) and (3), so on, on the end of the file name.

Mac will do similar.
