Question: PLEASE MAKE REAPER AS A FULL-FLEDGED VIDEO EDITOR ALSO, AND IF YOU INCREASE PRICE FROM $60 to $100, or even $150, MANY OF US WILL HAPPILY PAY YOU!!! Video editing for my music video is very buttery smooth in REAPER. I AM LOVING IT, but unfortunately, REAPER is currently, very basic for video editing :'(

Question: If I want lots of slow motions into my video, in which frame rate I must record my video?
Asked by Gold (182.68.69.x) on June 5 2020, 7:31am
Reply on June 5 2020, 6:24pm:
    Depends on how slow you want to go! Normal is 30fps or so, so if you do 60fps that's good for half-speed, 120fps for quarter speed, etc.

Question: Whenever scammer bought the product and opened a paypal case without informing it to seller, Fast Spring refunds them and charge $20 from seller. Did you know that?

Reply on June 1 2020, 9:20pm:
    Fraud/scammers are a problem with all payment methods unfortunately. We used to primarily use PayPal, but their lack of pre-purchase fraud filtering caused us to move (people seemed to be using PayPal purchases to test stolen credit card numbers, from what I could tell -- FastSpring at least prevents most of it from occurring in the first place, knock on wood).
Question: Are REAPER functions guidToString() and stringToGuid() thread-safe?

    Yes, they are basically sprintf()/sscanf().
Question: Hi Justin! How to calculate reaper marker rate with slope exactly? This working , but not every time exactly( double cur_marker = (N_stretchMarkerPos_Scr - stretchMarkerPos_Scr); double next_marker = (N_stretchMarkerPos - stretchMarkerPos); double pre_rate = (cur_marker / next_marker); double rate = ceil(100 * pre_rate) / 100; double rateLeft = 2 * rate / (1 + (1 + slope) / (1 - slope)); double rateRight = ((1 + slope) / (1 - slope) * rateLeft);

    There's some userdata you can set to get it to have the threshold metering... but it's undocumented for a reason

Reply on May 26 2020, 1:12pm (edited at May 26 2020, 1:15pm):
    We realized that the implementation could reuse a lot of existing complex logic (lowering the effort/result ratio to worthwhile levels).
