Profiler Settings

The Profiler Settings dialog box allows you to specify which types of information will be captured by the Game Profiler during the capture process. If you select too many types of information, Wwise's performance may be affected. By clearing some of the options, you can do the following:

  • Save network transfer bandwidth.

  • Save memory space in Wwise.

  • Save CPU time in game by not calculating the data.

  • Save CPU time in Wwise by not processing or drawing the data.

[Note] Note

When you deselect a data type in the Profiler Settings dialog box, usually a corresponding tab is removed from the Advanced Profiler. In the case of Spatial Audio information, however, there is no tab. Instead, these data types correspond to information sent to the Game Object 3D Viewer.
