Description

Convert external sources when generating banks

If enabled, External Source audio files are converted to WEM format as part of the SoundBank generation process. The files must be in WEM format to be used by the sound engine at runtime; however, if you’re not using the files locally, you can disable this option to speed up SoundBank generation.
