Applying attenuation instances to objects

After you have created the Attenuation ShareSets for your project, you can start applying them to your objects. These instances can be either custom or shared, depending on whether you want their properties to affect one object or several.

Applying Attenuation ShareSets to objects

If you want to attenuate objects, you can apply an Attenuation ShareSet to them. Several objects can subscribe to the same ShareSet, which can save you a great deal of time when changes are required.

To apply an Attenuation ShareSet to an object:

  1. Load an object into the Property Editor.

  2. Switch to the Positioning tab.

  3. In the Attenuation group, click the Selector button (>>).

    [Note]Note

    You must enable Listener Relative Routing to activate the Attenuation group.

    The list of Attenuation ShareSets is displayed.

  4. Select the Attenuation ShareSet you want to apply.

    The name of the ShareSet appears in the corresponding text box signifying that the ShareSet has been applied to the object.

    [Note]Note

    To edit the attenuation properties, click the Edit button.

Converting Attenuation ShareSets into custom instances

Attenuation instances in Wwise fall into two categories:

  • Custom attenuation instances can be applied to any one object in the hierarchy. When you change the properties of a custom instance, only this object is affected.

  • Attenuation ShareSets can be applied to many objects in your project hierarchy. When you change the properties of a ShareSet, all the objects using the ShareSet are affected.

By default, all attenuation instances you create begin as ShareSets. However, if you prefer, you can convert an Attenuation ShareSet into a custom attenuation instance. After the change is made, all modifications to the attenuation instance will apply only to the object that subscribes to it.

To apply an Attenuation instance to an object:

  1. Load an object into the Property Editor.

  2. Switch to the Positioning tab.

  3. From the Mode list in the Attenuation group, select one of the following options:

    • Use ShareSets to apply the ShareSet to the current object.

    • Define custom to apply a custom attenuation instance to the current object.

      [Note]Note

      You must enable Listener Relative Routing to activate the Attenuation group.

      [Note]Note

      To edit the Attenuation properties, click the Edit… button.
