How do you name an .exr file? I saw how to rename each pass but I couldn't figure out how to name the overall file?

    $\begingroup$ Not sure what you mean. Are you using a file output node to render an exr multilayer file? If yes, you can set the file path followed by the name in the node properties or in the node itself. Otherwise please add more context. $\endgroup$ – p2or Oct 6 '16 at 19:31
  • $\begingroup$ @poor I am using the file output node. Thanks for the help, I'm still a little new to the workflow still. It looks like if you are rendering a single channel format like .png you would name the file where it says "File Subpath" within the node. The multichannel .exr is a little different because there is no "File Subpath" but instead "Layers" and you name the main file in the path. $\endgroup$ – Animatoring Oct 6 '16 at 21:45
  • $\begingroup$ Again, png is a crappy file format. I'd suggest render as multilayer. I'd like to help, but I still not understand your issue, can you elaborate? What are you trying to achieve exactly? $\endgroup$ – p2or Oct 7 '16 at 9:22
  • $\begingroup$ @poor I was confused how to save the file name for a .exr file because the way to save the file name is different from saving a single channel file like png. When I saved it out, it would always render 0001.exr instead of "yourname".exr for example. You explained how to name exr files though so that answered the question. Thanks & sorry for the confusion. $\endgroup$ – Animatoring Oct 7 '16 at 20:45
