AME from AE frame numbering?
Frame numbering needs to be consistent when sending a render sequence out to AME. In AE you can overwrite specific parts of a sequence, retaining proper frame numbers. In AME the frame numbering ALWAYS starts at 0000 without any control, which makes rendering sequences to AME useless. Professionals use frame sequences for efficiency with motion graphics or FX. Limiting us to only rendering in AE or using 3rd party tools like Render Garden or BG Renderer shows a continued apathy towards your professional base. No, we don't need Premiere to work on a flipping Ipad, unless that's who your base is now...vloggers and hobbyists editing on devices not suited to the profession.
This has been an ongoing issue since the Queue was implemented. It has been IGNORED!!!!

Just install BG Renderer MAX from AE Scripts. It's well worth the $40 and does what AE should do.
This is amazing it hasn't been addressed. If you have a huge export you have two nightmares. One is that you have to use AE to export so you can overwrite frames, which means you can't work on anything else while it exports. Two, you have to figure out how to batch rename files into the correct sequence. That's thousands of files for me. Thanks Adobe.
