Default Copy media to working folder

Hi guys!

I'm using reaper as my mastering DAW and I often replace the wavefile within an item. That's super handy. I export and my work is done.
When a project is done and the client is happy I like to go to "file" - > "save project as" and make sure that the "copy all media into project directory" is turned on. I've tried a few times before where the media is offline because of Reaper NOT saving the used media into the working project folder. That's is why I always SAVE AS when I'm closing down a project. But I'd like to avoid more work than necessary.

I know how to customize my toolbar and add actions.
But how do I add a action where the used media gets copied into the working folder?
Best regards
Kasper

Hi MysoBob.

Thanks for helping. I keep getting a Warning: Please copy the fileops.dll to Userplugins folder.
I've done it but it's not working. Any idea on what to do?

Maybe you need to restart Reaper, you can ask in that forum if you still have issues.

I think this is the original script you can try but it was slow as it built the peak files again:
DSY_copy files to project folder v1.0.lua

I made these 2 to copy wav and peaks so it don't need to build them, I think I ran the peak one first then the wav one.

DSY_copy files to project folder copy peaks.lua
DSY_copy files to project folder copy wav.lua

Full Screen

Ahhh.
It says:
--------------Windows only! Doesn't work on Mac-------------------------

So I'll guess I'm out of options.... I'm on a Mac.

The original script should be able to be modified to work with Mac.

View - Project/media/fx bay

In the source page you can view locations of all files and copy or move all media to the project folder
