Detailed Description

Plug-in frontend instance.

A frontend contains the visual part of the Authoring plug-in. It is optional, for example, it is never instantiated when connecting through WwiseConsole. As such, there should never be any processing or "intelligence" done in a frontend part.

For example, the frontend should not affect licensing, soundbank generation, audio processing, property handling (such as validating ranges for property sets), media handling, media conversion, custom data loading, ...

Note: Porting note: In legacy plug-ins, there is only one instance of the Authoring plug-in that contains both the backend and the frontend. This has changed for multiple reasons: to be able to instantiate a plug-in backend without any frontend, or alternatively, to instantiate multiple copies of a frontend for a unique backend.
