the trick is to construct a list of symbols whcih are then concatenated
[makefilename movie %d.mov] will just output a symbol "movie" no matter
what is sent to it (this is: only the first argument is taken into account!)
so you will have to put the changing part (the one with %d) into
[makefilename], then create a list containing "movie" and the
constructed symbol and then use [l2s].
or you can use [l2s] to construct the format-string
(literal "movie %d.mov")
as one symbol and then set [makefilename].
so many possibilities...
