Simple Question: I rendered my pictures; what next?
I am a Maya novice and I'm at a bit of a loss with an incredibly simple question of which I'm sure the answer is probably blatantly obvious. I rendered my scene into .tif files. They appeared in my image folder as Scene 02.tif.01-256. What do I do next? What programs do I use to even read .tif files? Is there a way to get rid of the .01-.256 after the files? Thanks, I'm really sorry for this question, but I'm a bit new to the program and the question seems so simple, there's nowhere to find it. :/

You can use After Effects or VirtualDub to compile the images into a movie. I typically render out with the frame number before the extension. Not sure if that will cause problems. If so, you'll probably want to look into a batch renamer.

thanks stwert, but how would I change the batch render title? (And a little side question, what type of lighting do you think would be best for a candle/torch?

I mean like a file renaming utility:

But it could be fine as is.
