It's up to exporter really... -o whatevername.png is defined by exporter. So it can be a scene name or a custom name. No -o parameter means random numbers.
If we could get the same custom name option for igi, then it would be enough.
Ok it's on the TODO list.

Please don't forget the exr's to have a name option too...

The easiest way would be to trigger by -o the same name for all the output (png, igi & exr).

Yay, my plan worked :D :D

And those 'random numbers', i beleive they are the Seed for the thread random number generator. So they still are random :D

if you sort your render folder by name you will see, that the newer renderings have biger number than the older ones, so their not really random, but perhaps add a random number...

But thats because (methinks) Indigo's random thingy is seeded with numbers that have to do with the date, which is always increasing AFAIK

It's the number of seconds since 1970.

I would like to bump this thread since I having a problem realizing a "project".

My Idea is to use Indigo also on some friends computers to share rendertime over different Computers.

So I put all stuff needed on a USB Stick, Indigo + Scenefile and a bat file to start rendering in console mode, and one to resume this rendering.

The Idea is to start once the rendering on my Friends Computer, and then after igi file is saved for the first time, stop it.
Now I use the bat file for resume rendering and modify it to always save to a named igi file, and always resume from this file.

Now I could simply put this bat file into his Autostart, and each time the Computer is on, Indigo resumes my rendering...

This is the basic Idea, but the only thin needed is some little coding work from you Ono, for a feature requested since -o is an option...
