Creating a New Project

You need to use the Project Launcher to open New Project and create your first Wwise project. Within a loaded Wwise project, New Project is accessed from the Project > New... menu option.

To create a new project:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • In the Project Launcher, click New....

    • From the Wwise menu bar, click Project > New.

    • Press Ctrl + N.

    The New Project dialog opens.

  2. Enter the name for the new project in Name.

    [Note] Note

    Each project name in Wwise must be unique, and the following characters may not be used: ‘:<>*?”/\|.’.

    As you type a valid project name, the project path is updated in Project folder, and OK activates.

  3. In Location, do one of the following:

    • From the list of paths, select a path that was previously used for your projects.

    • Click the browse button […] to navigate to a location where you want to create your new project.

    The path that you have selected for the project folder is displayed in Project folder.

    [Note] Note

    If you select a mapped network for your project, this may result in some audio playback performance issues that Audiokinetic will not be able to support.

  4. In Original files, do one of the following:

    • Select Use Default Originals Directory from the list. This folder is located in the Wwise project folder.

    • Click the browse button […] to navigate to a location where you want to create your "Originals" folder.

  5. Review the list of platforms. Click Add... for Adding a Platform, Remove for Removing a Platform, or Rename to change the name of any of the listed platforms you select.

    [Note] Note

    You can change your project's platforms at a later time in the Platform Manager, which can be opened from the Projects menu.

  6. Select all the asset groups you would like to include in your project.

  7. Click OK.

    The new project is created in the Wwise projects folder in the location that you specified.
