In my work for television series, and more specifically when making titles, there is a lot of sequential naming and renaming. Most of the time, I name my output files the same as my scenefiles, to make sure that I can find the right scenefile when a correction or alteration is needed.
Wouldn't it be fantastic when Cinema 4D render settings had a shortcut for that?
My proposal: use wildcards!
For instance, this output path:
means that it should take my scene file's name (replacing the .c4d by the right extension)
That would make versioning less pain in the ass.
