multiview: overwrite and file naming
Open, ConfirmedPublic

Short description of error
"not overwrite" option doesn't work with multiview when some views already exist on disk, could be a minor problem but rendering one single view with views option activated create a 0 byte "myfile_L.jpg" file but save only myfile.jpg

Confirmed, but ...

The code tries to query if either view is present before refusing to render. That happens because the "overwrite" code happens even prior to the rendering loop.

In your particular case why would you require rendering only of a single view?

Because
Trying to render 6 views doesn't work, cuda error (probably a bug)

or because I render on multiple computer

or because rendering two view take 2min 58 second versus 2x24 seconds for one view at a time (empty scene with high resolution background) (probably a bug)

or because I already rendered one view and I satisfied with the result
