Defining Event Creation Settings

Events in Wwise can be created in a multitude of ways. If an Event is created without a target object, Wwise will give the new Event a generic name. If however the Event is created for a selected object, you can specify how Wwise constructs the new event's name.

To define the Event Creation Settings for your project:

  1. Open the Project Settings dialog box by doing one of the following:

    • From the Project menu, select Project Settings.

    • Press Shift+K.

  2. Select whether to specify the Event Creation Settings for the project or the current user:

    • To set the Event Creation Settings for the project, select Define settings for project.

    • To set the Event Creation Settings for the current user, select Override settings for current user.

  3. Select the desired Event Creation Settings:

    • Enable Add action name to include the Action name in the Event name.

    • Enable Modify case to set the case of the Event name.

    See below for more details.

  4. Click OK to save your settings and close the Project Settings dialog box.

By default, the object's name is used as the new Event name. The following options can modify the new Event name:

  • Add action name: if enabled, the event's action name is added to the Event name.

    1. set as prefix - the Action name is used as a prefix to the object name: <action_name>_<object_name>

    2. set as suffix - the Action name is used as a suffix to the object name: <object_name>_<action_name>

  • Modify case: if enabled, the case of the event's name is changed.

    1. all lowercase - the event's name is all lowercase.

    2. all uppercase - the event's name is all uppercase.

[Note] Note

The Event Creation Settings may be configured for the entire project, or for the current user.
