If you are using AATranslator - what version are you using?
If you are using the demo that may explain it.

Send me the OMF if you dont mind so I can check it out.

I'm using the omf .dll that was provided in this thread...I haven't tried AA translator yet.

I'll send you the OMF via DROPBOX, actually...



EDIT: Here is the db link...

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6428385/Afternoon_OMF.omf

Careful, some of the levels have inexplicably shot up so you have some clips peaking at 3 or 4 db.

Without the video its hard to know if it makes sense but it all seems ok to me

An OMF is supposed to max at 6db but there are some real doozy levels in this one

Just email me via the aat website and I'll send you an rpp or ftp to the audio.

Dont ask but I cant pm you so email me if you like.

When I opened the OMF in Reaper it made no sense...without the video or with it, you'd be able to tell. Sounds repeat over and over, get cut off, voices cut off mid sentence then repeat...

Also none of my audio peaked in FCP, or even really came close....but here it's like all the volume was amplified out of control.

I'll email you for the .rpp if you'd be so generous.

Hey guys, just wanted to say Michael graciously took the time to help me with my project and convert an OMF with his AATranslator and it worked flawlessly. All envelopes, automation points, fades, time, placement, etc were represented cleanly and correctly from an FCP OMF.

I'm going to check out the demo soon and add it to the list of programs (along with Reaper) I recommend my film school friends.

I wouldn't hold your breath - and quite frankly I hope the Reaper devs don't waste their valuable time on OMF.

OMF is so over-rated, poorly implemented and I know how much time we have spent on this crap it would be a shame to see Cockos bog themselves down with it.

Avid should be had up for human rights violations.

I still know a lot of people who wouldn't even give a second look at Reaper if it didn't have OMF support...

Sad, but true.

I just noticed that the OMF Interchange Specification Version 2.1 is now readily available on the Internet.

Those Linux guys can get away with that shit.

Default What the Hell!!!

I have beta5 of the OMF.dll
I have tried all versions of this plugin.
I use Reaper v 4.02 x 64bit.
I cannot even see the support option when in my open project window.

Why...

I swear I have the beaten red-headed step child of technology sitting on top of my desk right now.

Regardless of whether the OMF is v.1 or 2... I should still at least see OMF support in my open project window, yes?

Default Why?

Why does the same OMF file looks absolutely different in Reaper and Nuendo?
When I tried to import this OMF to Reaper, it said, that there are some missing files.
While Nuendo opened it without any problems.
And why does some OMF's makes Reaper crash?

Unfortunately not everyone either writes their OMFs to spec or reads them to spec.

Not all OMFs are created equally ;-)

Default OMF Plugin for Windows 7 x64

The OMF Plugin for reaper seems not to work on my Windows 7 x64 computer.

Bad Image: It is either not run on Windows or it contains an error.

Any suggestions?

Default reaper_omf.dll not working with SONAR X1

Reaper 4.151 with reaper_omf.ddl beta5 OMF import does not get any audio files from SONAR X1. The import works, but all the audio comes up missing. If I use audio file references rather than embedded OMF audio, the files are still missing - but its because the file names in the generated audio folder are the names Reaper uses for the items.

Note that reaper_omf.dll doesn't work at all with 64 bit Reaper.

Am I using the wrong version of reaper_omf.dll?

It has not been updated in a very long time, so it probably won't work any longer.

If you need OMF conversion quite often, check out Runaways tool AATranslator. It's not free, but he'll convert a session for you, so you can be sure you get exactly what you need from it.

I bought AAT long time ago and I like it, and all the effort Runaway put in it. But I often had problems with the conversions... I know many softwares produce files that don't exactly respect the format, but that's why we need a good conversion tool.

In two days I need to work (video post production) on omf (or aaf) files from an Avid Symphony system, and I can't find a way to convert to Reaper. I tried many AAT translations, including pre-conversions (omf to omf) through ProToools 9. Protools is the only software able to open the files without errors (why am I not surprised ? As usual, Avid is compatible with himself...). I may have no choice but working in PT9 but I'm not used to it and prefer Reaper...

Hi François,

We have made some progress in this area so contact me directly to see what we can do - no promises of course

BTW I won't bore you with any of the details as to how convoluted they have made the process - even to the point of rescrambling the extracted 64 character file names ;-)

Hopefully we now have another happy camper ;-)

Bottom line here for all - don't hesitate to contact me (or JL) directly if you think you have an AAT issue. Usually it is either not a problem or if in the odd event it is then we can get it sorted asap.

I can attest to this based on recent experience. Runaway is very quick to help and my problem was fixed completely.

Thanks Plush2

The main problem in this case was to do with the French language and the fact that we hadn't dealt with this with exports to RPP with a session offset (go figure!)

Understandably quite frustrating for Francois but now fixed.

Yes, a big warm thank you for your help ! If anyone with an "exotic" language faces an AAT error while creating the rpp file, try to change the localisation to English in Windows control panel. I'm sure the next release of AAT will fix this.

Yep sure will.
We still have a few issues with converting some track automation out of AAF but just converting an AAF is still a plus IMO ;-)

Default Adobe Premiere CS5 OMF Files

I am new to Reaper and still figuring out the ins and outs of the software. So far I love everything about it except one thing. OMF Importing. I have tried this plug-in with no luck. I have downloaded it, dropped it in the plug-ins folder and when to open project. OMF do not show up as supported file types and if I click on the visible file types in the lower right, OMF's are not an option.

Am I missing something or is this a feature that has not been fully implemented yet. I would like to be able to export out the OMF from Adobe Premiere CS5 and then open it up in Reaper for sweetening with all of the clips aligned as they were in Premiere.

Please let me know if there is a workflow that I could use to accomplish this task. Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

You have to drop it Reaper's plugins folder not VST plugins folder (there's an action 'show Reaper resource path' if not sure where it is).

That said, this plugin (it's a independent 3rd party development which stopped at beta state iirc) sadly never worked reliably for me though, got errors on import on the OMF's I've tried.

Several users here (including me) are using the excellent AATranslator now for this task.

Can you give me a little more info on the AATranslator. I am up to try anything that gets this job done. This is really the only setback I have before making the decision to purchase this software for my business. Any information would be great.

Thanks fir the help.

The easiest way to explain is probably just to send me a test OMF via the AATranslator web site and I'll convert it for you or you can just email me directly if you need to discuss in more detail.

Hi !
Is this plug in still in developpement ?
I see a lot of people out there arguing against OMF format or pro-AATranslator, but a "native" support of that could great (it's unfortunately often the only sequence-audio format exportable in many video-softwares).

An OMF-to-Reaper plug-in has been on my TODO list for a couple of years now. But I figured I'd give Runaway a head start.

The Reaper plug-in architecture sucks – the last time I looked it was hostile to any plug-in that wanted to display a GUI.

Is it still like that?

And then there was that stupid sprintf() syntax bullshit …

I don't know how plugin scripting has evolved.

but anyway.
I know OMF is not an ideal format.
I know ATT translator can do a lot of thing.
But OMF exists and is widely used today. Is there alternative ? is AAF better ? i don't know. But AAF is not support as well (consider that as an other feature request )
and ATT translator is very (very) expensive.

So, OMFOO, I'll give you all my support for that. You have a name made for this task ^^

I can not believe that OMF import/export is not supported natively ... It is one of the "must have" features for post production studios.

Well, you know, when "the big guys" actually get to an agreement about how OMF should look and behave (because it doesn't really transfer perfectly between various DAWs which even support OMF natively), maybe only then it would be a good idea.

Till then, just use AA Translator.

The big guys aren’t going to be doing anything like that soon. They’ve been relying on a 32-bit DLL called “omfToolkit.dll” from Avid to do the dirty work. And afaik [maybe Runaway might know] no one has recompiled it for 64-bit applications; which is why all the new 64-bit applications no longer support OMF.

If OMF isn’t dead already it will probably die when 32-bit applications die.

Unless - of course, somebody does something.

Maybe something will show up with the release of PT11. Protools is needs to support OMF import.

OMF will not die until there's a suitable replacement with widespread adoption for it. There is a real need for a format like that and it won't magically go away. OMF is not a perfect format, not even a very good one, but it is the only one that we have and that the major DAWs support. Except for REAPER of course.

AATranslator is a very good product that supports a ton of DAWs in their native formats (i.e. much better than OMF) but obviously most people expect this functionality in REAPER, not in a $200 third-party product.

If there's going to be another OMF import plugin that helps some folks, that's a good thing.

I don't expect Cockos to ever dive in to this for dozens of very simple reasons. There are dozens of different OMF flavours. And of AAF files as well.

And the post production folks like myself, keep all the companion apps we require or can get our hands on in our pocket, ready for use.

A lot of folks I know keep Pro Convert/SSL, AVTransfer(ancient but handles some flavours others don't) and AATranslator at hand. That's in addition to native import capabilities that Nuendo, Pyramix, Protools and Sequoia offer. Then there's the companion stuff for reconforming to picture cuts or reassembling sessions from on-set-reference-mix tracks of production sound, like Titan, Assemblerator or Conformalizer.

None of those hosts cover every base, and companion tools are often more flexible and quicker to react to user needs. So I welcome another plugin that further improves coverage for Reaper users with a plugin or through improvements to AATranslator, or whatever else may come.

But why should Cockos do it. They've got so many other things to do. Of course, improving whatever one can do with their API is always a good thing. I would certainly encourage anyone to directly contact them about helping you to improve how people can expand Reapers functionality.
