Can AME export PNG sequences with same filename format as AE's Render Queue?

Been working on a medium-sized project. Using AE's built-in renderer to test. Exported PNG sequences have the default filename format:




where nnnnn is the 5-digit frame number padded with leading zeros. That's great, no problems.


Now I want to use AME 2021 (not upgrading until bugs are resolved) to export all the comps in the background while I do other stuff in AE. The resulting filenames by default are:




where nnn is the 3-digit frame number padded with leading zeros. Umm, what??? For seemingly no logical reason AME drops the "_" between comp name and removes two digits to the frame number. I looked online to see if there is a way to customize the output filename format from either AE or AME but found nothing. I'm hoping one of you knowledgeable experts knows how to do this. Does anybody know if the newer versions have option to customize PNG sequence filenames? Thanks in advance!
