I'm having trouble attaching a file extension to my rendered RGB frames. Some scenes render frames with the selected extension (in my case .png) to my frame sequences, but for some reason other scenes won't. I have gone into the save dialogue box, renaming my sequence, trying different compression types, trying everything I can think of, but the dialogue box won't update (it says "name001, ...") and the saved frames have no extension and can't be opened (at least in QT Pro). Any suggestions out there? Thanks.

Using 9.3.1 UB on a MacPro.

I never solved this weird problem within LW but for anyone in a similar fix there are renaming programs available.

I had success with renamer4mac -- a freeware program that allows you to batch append a file extension for your rendered frames--after which they are viewable as normal:
