Default Render Mix stops at 7hrs

Hi

It may be a strange use for Reaper, but I wanted to generate a 24 hour SMPTE stripe. I've created the track at the correct length, but when I come to render the master mix and entire project I only get the first 7 hours, 25 minutes and 48 seconds.

This happens for audio files as well, so I wonder if this is a limitation or a bug. I expect there aren't many people that want a 7 hour plus mix

Any suggestions?

in file/project settings, check the "limit project lenght" option?

Max file size on disk?

7 hours, 25 minutes and 48 seconds = 2250 MB (@ 44100 16-bit)

What are your parameters for the session, the SMPTE LTC generator and the render window ?

I'll assume it's 48kHz, but what frame rate(both project and SMPTE LTC generator) ?

Any offset involved ?

Target format ?

Target disk file system type(NTFS, FAT32, HFS+ ?)

I'm doing a test-render with 48kHz/16 bit WAV, 30fps on to an NTFS disk. We'll see how that goes. Takes a damn long time too.

I think these two are the key questions. Wav64 will allow for larger files, and the disk file system will have to also.

I had no problem generating that file.

8 Gigabyte in size. Hmm. I'll test various compressors on that now .
