I'm trying to automate the "Save Frame As...File" function through a script. I've gotten it to work by sending an item to the render queue, changing the duration of the render to be 1 frame, and using a jpg template for the output module.
The problem comes in when naming what the render will be called. I do not want the render to have the time code or frame number in it.
If I save a frame through the interface, then the render will get named "comp_name (0;00;03;09)"
Then, clicking on the templates in the "Output To:" field, I can choose "Comp Name", and my comp will render as "comp_name"
If I run my script, I can set the output to be set as "comp name". However, if I then choose "Comp Name" (or any other Output To: template), and get the additional "[####]" added to the name.
Is there any way to add an item to the render queue, and not have it default back to "[####]", besides going into each comp, and running "Save Frame As..."
Hopefully this makes sense, and thanks for any help.
