Default can someone confirm custom action limit?

https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=226256

in the linked thread i describe a problem i've recently had. wondering if it could be linux related so thought i'd ask for confirmation here.

essentially, i couldn't save a custom action that got too big. breaking it into smaller parts and combining the parts into a new action solved the issue but requires having three actions instead of one.

the limit i found was at around 114 actions. in my case, ten of the sub-actions were themselves custom actions, each containing 9 actions. thus, i'm counting the ten instances 90 actions.

anyway, does anyone else get this behavior? i'm on kubuntu with kx repositories and using reaper64 v5.984

thanks,
babag

The most actions I've ever chained together was to create an "Undo recording, Rewind to last start position, and then Punch back into recording" function, which I have assigned to a button my my IR remote so I can use it while tracking guitar, bass, keyboards, or across the room on drums.

What the heck would have 114 back to back processes even do?

the action takes a, roughly, 35sec piece of roomtone and divides it into 16 predetermined lengths, renaming each according to its length. i have a client with very specific requirements for pause lengths in their dialog files. i use this at the beginning of projects for dialog editing. it gives me all of the length options i need for filling breaths, adjusting delivery timing, and such. setting the time selection and splitting, not to mention the renaming, of each length takes quite a few actions. as an example, if each split/rename required 10 actions, that would be 160 actions.

thanks,

Wow! Sounds very tedious, even with the help of mega-actions. Only once can I remember a client with weird needs like that, which was a dialog only hour long recording about a dialysis machine, which I had to edit from one machine to another using 1/4" tape.
