Click Ok

This warning to just to inform you that the frames numbers are being modified
Click Yes

Step 3: Check if it worked

Click onĀ “Modify Frame range” again. You should see the “Frame List’ listing your new frames like this
Click “Ok”

Step 4 OPTIONAL way to NOT waste render time

  • Under the Task panel for your job
  • Select all the frames that are not part of your first x10
  • Suspend them. This way you can check your frist x10’s before rendering them all out.
