Rev audio clips

RIGHT. But there's a way to go; what you are trying to do is go behind Rev's
back and obtain the data. Simpler with one audio file, but what if there are

One could find the start and stop points for audio data that Rev uses in the
files, find the parts that will be stripped, put them into the audioclip as
a custom property (yes audioclips have custom properties.)

Another way would be to tap into the IDE asset database to obtain the
location of this data.

I guess one could just get one to work, and copy single audio clips to an
invisible stack for export, then delete the stack.

Another way to do it that will work right now would be to import the audio
file as an audioclip, and at the same time save the same audio file into a
custom property *of* the audioclip.
Two copies; one to export and one to play. And will require no reverse
engineering or making wild guesses about what the API does.

Bloated for sure, but does it matter in this day of monster hard drives?
Creeps me out about the waste  though.
