Capture Log Options

The Capture Log Options view allows you to include or remove entries from the Capture Log based on a series of filter options, such as item type, Wwise object name, and scope.

Interface Element


Include Relations

Playback Relation (dots column)

Shows all notifications occurring in the same Event as the target objects, even if they don't apply to the target object directly. This shows all elements linked by a blue bullet.

Game Object Relations

Will include everything that occurs on the same game object as the selected object. For example, let's say that you have selected Sound A as the filtered object and it plays on a Game Object that already has Sound B playing. It will add all playback relations pertaining to Sound B on that Game Object in the Capture Log view.

Parents and Busses when using Object Filter

Will include the notifications for all the hierarchical parents of the selected object and all the busses the children may be routed to.
