Arnold overwriting same file on output

Hi All,

I just re-installed Arnold on a new machine and while attempting to render a sequence noticed that it's overwriting the same frame on output. I've attached the code I'm using below (which worked before I changed machines). Can someone have a look and let me know if you see any obvious errors?

Thanks, Dan
