Managing Messages that Appear in the Logs

There may be situations where you no longer want or need specific warnings and/or messages to be displayed in the SoundBank or Conversion logs during the generation process. To prevent these types of warnings and messages from appearing in the SoundBank Log, you can add them to the Log Ignore list. When you want to include these messages back in the log, you can simply remove the message types from the Log Ignore List. This list of messages is managed at the project level in the Project Settings dialog box.

[Note] Note

You can also add messages to the Log Ignore List by right-clicking a message directly in the log and selecting Add Message(s) to Ignore List. For more information, refer to Adding Messages to the Log Ignore List.
