Default could someone try to open an .omf for me?

Hello,

I have trouble opening an .omf file.
Omf-Extension .dll is installed on two computers. When I try to open the .omf-file one machine gives the error "no valid .omf" the other just quits reaper.

Are there any tricks with .omfs? Its no problem opening the file in adobe audition. Since the original .omf was +200mb (causing problems with the omf-extension), I exported it again from audition without all the media-files (non-encapsulated).

To find out if it's just my machines or if there's something wrong with the file itself, I am looking for someone, who already successfully opened an .omf-file. If you could try to open my file and save it as .rpp - that would be great!

Johann, the reason being is that OMF is not a compatible file type in Reaper. AATranslator is a 3rd party app that will (I believe) convert OMF to a Reaper readable format.

trust me... you can't directly open omf in reaper...

and trust me again... do contact Runaway....

most likely he will help you and you might learn things about omf that you never knew...

Strange to believe but even I sleep sometimes - LOL

The omf extension for Reaper was a good effort but just doesn't work most of the time (no disrespect intended).

You could send me the OMF but that is probably a waste of good bandwidth (+200mb) but as you have already converted the omf using Audition just email me (via the AATranslator web site) the Audition SESX file and I will convert that to Reaper for you.
