How to use where argument in a ak.wwise.core.object.get call?

0 votes

I am trying to get all the actor mixers under an object called "Fire" using the Waapi through Python. Here is my code:
``` python
client = WaapiClient()
args = {
    "from": {

        "search": ["Fire"]


    "transform": [


            "select": ["descendants"],

            "where": [{"type": "ActorMixer"}]




response ="ak.wwise.core.object.get", args)
but with this code I get the following error:
WampClientAutobahn (ERROR): ('ApplicationError(error=<ak.wwise.invalid_arguments>, args=[], '
 "kwargs={'message': 'Argument "
 'transform/0={"select":["descendants"],"where":[{"type":"ActorMixer"}]} '

I checked the argumentsSchema for the get function, I don't see the mistake I am making. I don't want to use the waql and I don't want to use "ofType", I would like to know why the "where" isn't working. If anyone has any code snippet using the get function with a where condition without waql I would really appreciate it.
