Logs Tab

There might be situations where you no longer want or need specific warnings and/or messages to be displayed in the SoundBank Log during the generation process or the Conversion Log during the conversion process. You might also want to change the severity of a specific message depending on your policies. You can also limit the number of messages (per type) that will be displayed in the logs.
