Integrating Reaper not working

Hello I am trying to integrate reaper and following the document in the help menu, everything works up to the point where I trying to import the timeline from reaper, I tried to drag the reaper .rpp file session file into the events as suggested here

‘‘Once the metafile for a Reaper project is generated, it can be imported as an event by dragging the Reaper project file ( .rpp ) from a file manager into the [events browser]’’

but it does not work?
Would anyone know what I’m doing wrong, I’m on a mac.

It seems to be working when I test it here, so I must be doing something differently to you.

Could you describe in detail what happens when you try to import a Reaper metafile as an event, and how it differs from what you expect?

Maybe I am mistaken, so I don’t import the reaper .RPP file only the .fsprometa file?

That isn’t an option.

So the .rpp file opens in FMOD, but when I try to drag it to the Events it will not let me?

The integration .eel script seems to be working in reaper. Do I have to render the session files, or will FMOD see my current timeline in Reaper, this is where I am confused with the process?


It works for me. The process is as explained in the manual. It seems that once the render option is set correctly, the FMOD’s eel script runs to generate the metafile, and the reaper project is saved, dragging the .rpp file to the event tab renders the files automatically.

So do I need to have a separate destination for render files as opposed to reaper session files?
