Reorganizing media files within the Originals folder

As the number of source media files within your project grows, you may want to organize them into a series of sub-folders. Since Wwise needs to keep track of the full path and name of each source file, you must perform the move operation within the File Manager in Wwise.


You must save your project before moving the source files in the Originals folder.

To move files between folders within the Originals directory:

  1. Save your current project.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • From the menu bar, click Project > File Manager.

    • Press Shift+F1.

    The File Manager opens.

  3. Switch to the Source Files tab.

  4. Select the file(s) you want to move.

  5. Right-click the selection and select Move from the menu.

    The Browse For Folder dialog opens.

  6. Navigate through the folder structure and select the folder where you want to move the file.


    If you want to create a new folder, select the parent folder, click the Make New Folder button, and then specify a name for the folder.

  7. Click OK to move the file to the new folder.

    The Process Log dialog opens and displays information about each file that is moved.

  8. Click OK to close the Process Log dialog.
