Seek Type

The value type in which the seeking position is expressed. The following values are available:

  • Percent (the default value): The seeking position is expressed as a fraction of the sound’s total duration.
  • Time: The seeking position is expressed as an absolute value from the beginning of the file, in seconds.

Default value: Percent

Seek Percent

The seek position expressed as a percentage of the sound’s total duration. This duration takes looping into account. For example, seeking to 50% of a sound that loops twice over itself will bring the cursor to the beginning of the second loop.

Sounds that loop infinitely are an exception, because their duration is infinite. In such a case, the effective position is computed as if they were not looping, and is then applied by taking looping into account. Consequently, it is impossible to seek after a looping region (in the “outro portion”) of an infinitely looping sound.

When seeking within a Music Segment, the position is relative to the Entry Cue, and the object’s duration is defined by the duration between the Entry and Exit Cues. It is thus impossible to seek before the Entry Cue (Pre-Entry) or after the Exit Cue (Post-Exit).

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 100
Units: %

Seek Time

The seek position expressed as an absolute time value. This duration takes looping into account. For example, seeking to 10 seconds of a 10 second sound that loops twice over itself will bring the cursor to the beginning of the second loop.

Likewise, it is impossible to seek after a looping region (in the outro portion) of an infinitely looping sound.

When seeking within a Music Segment, the position is relative to the Entry Cue. It is thus impossible to seek before the Entry Cue (Pre-Entry). However, it is possible to seek after the Exit Cue (Post-Exit) using this option.

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 3600
Units: s

Seek To Nearest Marker

The effective seek position will snap to the nearest marker. Markers are embedded into wave files and preserved when they are imported in Wwise.

When seeking within Music Segments though, this option will snap the effective position to the nearest Segment Custom Cue, or Segment Entry Cue, as authored in the Segment Editor. The Exit Cue is always ignored.

Default value: false

SeekAll

Changes the playback position of all Wwise objects, although exceptions can be added.

It has no effect on objects that are not currently playing.

For a complete list of notes and restrictions related to the SeekAll Event Action, refer to section Seek/SeekAll Notes and Restrictions below.

Scope

Consequently, it is impossible to seek after a looping region (in the “outro portion”) of an infinitely looping sound.

When seeking within a Music Segment, the position is relative to the Entry Cue, and the object’s duration is defined by the duration between the Entry and Exit Cues. It is thus impossible to seek before the Entry Cue (Pre-Entry) or after the Exit Cue (Post-Exit).

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 100
Units: %

Seek Time

The seek position expressed as an absolute time value. This duration takes looping into account. For example, seeking to 10 seconds of a 10 second sound that loops twice over itself will bring the cursor to the beginning of the second loop.

Likewise, it is impossible to seek after a looping region (in the outro portion) of an infinitely looping sound.

When seeking within a Music Segment, the position is relative to the Entry Cue. It is thus impossible to seek before the Entry Cue (Pre-Entry). However, it is possible to seek after the Exit Cue (Post-Exit) using this option.

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 3600

Enable Bypass

Bypasses the Effect applied to the associated Wwise object.

[Note] Note

Enable Bypass and Disable Bypass Actions only affect each other when using the same option (All or Specific). If an Enable/Disable Bypass action is performed on an effect, then the Action can only be undone using the same option.

For example: Enable Bypass with option Specific can only be undone with Disable Bypass with option Specific.

Target

The object to which the Action is set.

Scope

Specifies on which game objects the Action applies, from these two options:

Seek/SeekAll Notes and Restrictions
  • In order to create an Event which starts the playback of a Wwise object at a specific location of the (first) sound, add a Play action followed by a Seek action.

  • No volume fading is performed when seeking, thus seeking while a sound is playing may result in a click.

  • Music Playlist Containers and motion objects do not support seeking.

  • When the sound is a plug-in source, seeking is executed by the plug-in, if it implements it. Currently, only Wwise Silence supports seeking.

  • Seeking only applies to sounds that are currently playing. You cannot use this action to jump between objects that are part of a continuous sequence.

  • If the seeking position is greater than the length of the sound, it stops playing.

  • Seeking will fail if one of the ancestors of the playing sound is a continuous (Random or sequence) Container with one of these special transitions:

    • Trigger rate

    • Crossfade (amp)

    • Crossfade (power)

    • Sample-accurate (Seeking will actually work with continuous sequences with sample-accurate transitions only if the sound that is currently playing is the first one of the sequence.)

  • Seek time or percentage takes looping (and looping regions) into account (see notes for parameters "Seek percent" and "Seek time").

  • After seeking, playback might be delayed by latency due to streaming. In the case of a Music Segment, this delay is equal to the segment's look-ahead time (see Music Tracks' properties). A segment's look-ahead time is the greatest streaming look-ahead value of all its streaming child tracks.
