Question: I worked through reverse-engineering the Base-64-decoded renderstrings recently and found, that some of the values are stored as floats. My problem being, that I don't know, how to convert a 3 or 4byte integer into it's float representation. How do you do it in Reaper? Do you convert it using a special algorithm before makeing it Base64 or does C/C++ do it for you? In the former case, what would you reommend reading about that?

    In C you can use a simple cast eg “*(float *)&integervalue”. One can also interpret the bits directly using the IEEE 754 spec...
