Default Project Render Metadata deleted

I haven't been able to determine the steps to reproduce this issue but occasionally the metadata entered in the Project Render Metadata window is deleted. Looking inside the RPP file, the metadata is not present. I do know that it happens without changing any render settings. I'll try to narrow down when it occurs but I don't have any clues at this point. I do often use the "File: Add project to render queue, using the most recent render settings".

I'm also experiencing this and it's quite frustrating.

Which version of Reaper do you use on which operating system?

What I can say is that the <RENDER_METADATA .....> just disappears.



I got this from two Reaper backup files - the left shows the existence of meta-data while it gets removed in the file on the right.

I've attached both files in case that helps?

Can you try to make a LiceCap of the actions you do that lead to the disappearance? So the devs can reproduce it step by step.

The loss of the RENDER_METADATA in the project file is the same for me. I haven't been able to nail down a specific trigger yet.

I'm following this thread, but any hints as to the type of action that leads to the metadata being lost would be helpful!

@schwa

Is there any chance to add a action logging feature to Reaper which can be enabled in such cases?
It logs all actions to a logfile and when the problem arises, we could send you the logfile.
Would be helpful especially for the edgecasy issues like this one, that are hard to get.

Sorry, I've tried multiple times to try replicate this but haven't figured out what the steps are to reproduce it yet.

One way I can reproduce it,..
Move a region, then undo, then save project, and the metadata disappears.
Note I only setting INFO data.

Win10_x64, REAPER v6.13.

EDIT: Can't reproduce with pre-release 0824a.

Yeah, from the changelog for 0824a I assumed it contains a fix for this issue (line starting with # Render), but then I was confused because this thread wasn't linked as it's usually the case with bugfixes, maybe they just forgot?

Anyway, OP could check out 0824a pre-release if it's fixed for him/her too.

I can confirm this reproduces the issue and also that the issue is fixed in 0825.

Thanks a million!!!!
