Default "-renderproject" option improvements

Justin,

most of my projects have untitled.wav in the render settings as default file name.


Rendering projects with the

reaper.exe -renderproject

option now overwrites (because of the same output name) rendered files without warning


Why not rendering to projectname.wav instead?


Say the project is called
Test - 001.rpp

then the output should be named
Test - 001.wav



+ Reaper really should NEVER overwrite files without warning! Please do a check there before writing any files!


In this example, Reaper should bring up a dialog if Test - 001.wav already exists:

________________________________

File already exists
________________________________

[Overwrite] [Rename] [Cancel]
________________________________


or just

________________________________

File already exists. Overwrite?
________________________________

[Yes] [No]
________________________________



+ rendering this way only should show the render window:




At the moment you still see the main interface for a moment.

or even better
Test - 001_001.wav
Test - 001_002.wav
Test - 001_003.wav

incrementing the suffix for each subsequent render.

mmh, i wouldn't like

Test - 001_001.wav

if i just render Test - 001.wav


if Test - 001.wav already exists, then Reaper should bring up a dialog
