I have two sets of m3a files based on the same identical sets of parameters.
The first frame of the second animation is the exact same view as the last frame of the first animation.

I can join the two sets of output files, but doing so gives a slight glitch when the video is compiled, so I intend to  redo the whole animation from scratch.

Is there a simple method of combining the two .m3a files into one, or am I going to be exporting individual keyframes from one and then importing them into the other?

You perhaps posted this in not quite the right place and so this may be why you have no replies(??)

What I think I understand is that the latter images of your first sequence will be influenced by the previous keyframes, whereas the early images of the second sequence will be influenced by the following keyframes. As they are being influenced by different frames, this is why they don't quite match up. Like you suggest, importing is the way. What you might do is add the last 3 keyframes to the first three of the next sequence and then determine at what midpoint the subframes around the 2nd keyframe are the same (you then don't need to render each sequence join twice). Then you can merge them together seamlessly. There may be other ways to do this, but this tends to work for me.

hope this helps

If i find the time i would do the opening as a default appending function, because there is already a reset function to clear everything before loading a new file.  But... no warranty for this upgrade.
