When I import a FX chain with the FX menu, the numbers of tracks channels set automatically for the FX Chains Needs. But If I Import THe exact same FX Chain with the Resources (fx chains) window, the number of channel stay at default...

Isn't that possible to have the same behavior?

SWS extebsions 2.1.0.4 W7 Reaper V4.02 64bit

Thanks for reading

yes, confirmed and as take fx too (multichannel).
if possible, the fix might be VERY tricky and overall VERY slow (I would have to decode FX chunks deeply, and of course, those chunks are different for JS, VST, etc..)

I wonder if there's perhaps a different way to import FX chains... Reaper copy/cut/pastes FX chains on the clipboard. If you use a clipboard spy utility like http://www.codeproject.com/KB/clipboard/clipspy.aspx you can see the format, which is just a chunk with the type "REAPERFX". Now, pasting that into the proper window is the trick... Just a thought.

1st fix in r550 : the Resources view's actions (apply, paste FX chain, etc..) now restores proper track channels numbers. "1st fix" because for that to work FX chains must have has been saved in the resource view ATM (using the "auto-save" button).
When saved like this, there's an additional info saved in the FX Chain which is compatible with REAPER, of course (i.e. can also be loaded in the FX chain window).

I forgot! Disregard what I say about take fx in comment #1 (error: nothing to see with multichannel items + not customizable)

@tim: unfortunately, paste/apply should work with multiple items/track at a time withtout any FX chain window opened.. I had a similar idea (simulating drag&drop to items/tracks but http://askjf.com/index.php?q=755s )
Anyway thanks for the ClipSpy tip, interesting stuff!

What I described in comment 3 in available since v2.1.0 #7
From the whatnew:
Resources view/FX Chains: support for track channels when FX Chains are saved in the Resources view ( Issue 363 )

I did some tests to go deeper in chunk/base-64 analysis: not serious.
(I'll probably raise this issue in the main REAPER forum at some point..)
