ak.wwise.core.audio.importTabDelimited

Scripted object creation and audio file import from a tab-delimited file.

Arguments

Name Type Description
autoAddToSourceControl boolean Determines if Wwise will automatically perform an Add or Checkout operation on the imported files with the source control. Defaults to false.
importFile * string Location of tab-delimited import file. For using WAAPI on Mac, please refer to Using WAAPI on Mac.
importLocation any of: Object ID (GUID), name, or path used as root relative object paths.
string The name of the object qualified by its type in the form of type:name. Only object types that have globally-unique names are supported. Ex: Event:Play_Sound_01
string An object GUID of the form: {aabbcc00-1122-3344-5566-77889900aabb}.
string A project path to a Wwise object, including the category and the work-unit. For example: \Actor-Mixer Hierarchy\Default Work Unit\New Sound SFX.
importOperation * string Determines how import object creation is performed. For each object created:
  • createNew: will create a new object; the object will be given the desired name if possible, otherwise a new unique name will be used.
  • useExisting: will use the object if it exists, updating the specified properties; otherwise it will create a new object. This is the default value.
  • replaceExisting: will create a new object; if an existing object has the same name then the existing object is destroyed.
    Possible values:
  • createNew
  • useExisting
  • replaceExisting
importLanguage * string Import language for audio file import (from among the project's defined languages, found in the WPROJ file LanguageList).
