Running 'ffmpeg -i %08d.ppm -libx264 -r 30 vid1.mp4' terminates with the 
message "Could find no file with path %08d.ppm and index in the range 0-4".
I know that this is caused because the first file that matches the pattern 
is 00000552.ppm and that renaming the files so that they start from 
00000000.ppm fixes the problem.

I wanted to know if there is a workaround for this without having to 
rename it separately from the command prompt and without using 
glob matching (I'm running this on a Windows machine).

Also, just to satiate my curiosity, why does this limitation exist?
