Setting Colors

To the right of every Wwise object icon is a color chip, set to empty (gray) by default. You can change it as desired to any of a possible 26 colors. This can help to quickly visualize and understand how your project is organized.

To set the color chip of objects:

  1. Select one or many objects within the Project Explorer.

  2. Open the shortcut menu and click Set Color….

    The color selector appears.

    [Note] Note

    Selecting the square at the far left of the color selector causes the object to inherit its parent's color. When a color has been explicitly chosen for an object, it is displayed with the palette icon and a yellow triangle in the lower-right corner, as shown.

  3. Click on the desired color's square. The selected objects' color chips are filled.

Color chips can also be set to a single color for all objects loaded within the Multi Editor.
