    So whenever I record my behavior for behavioral cloning, a new .demo file is created and placed in a directory (behavior1.demo, behavior1_0.demo, .., behavior1_99.demo). Each of these files has like 10-15 episodes. My behavior for the agent then uses this directory for behavioral cloning. Now this is fine at a small scale, but lets say I want to get thousands of episodes that I cannot record in one sitting, is there a way to write to an existing demo file or combine .demo files? I want to prevent having too many files but be able to continue adding episodes over a long period of time.

    My apologies,
    I checked with the team, at it is already possible to use multiple demo files to train. You need to place all the .demo files in a directory and then pass the path to this directory in the config file. The documentation says here : https://github.com/Unity-Technologi...g-Configuration-File.md#gail-intrinsic-reward
    gail -> demo_path (Required, no default) The path to your .demo file or directory of .demo files.​

    Sorry, I may not have been clear enough in my original post, I am currently doing this. I would like to be able to write to existing files or combine files so that I don't have have thousands of files as I am expecting a large number of recordings with a few episodes in each one. Thanks!
