Feature Request: Incremental integer for the filename for each event


Good day!

This is an amazing piece of software. Thank you for it! A more flexible naming of the files would help a lot in a few situations. For instance when using ffmpeg to create videos from a series of JPEG files, an incremental integer in the file name helps inputing the source images to the command line. If "motion" could output file names in the format: %03d<string>.jpg, would be great. Meaning, a series of files starting with:

0001<string>.jpg 0002<string>.jpg 0003<string>.jpg 0004<string>.jpg ...... 9999<string>.jpg

I hope this makes sense. For additional info, you can email me: marian at dantux dot com
