Generating unique IDs in work unit XML

0 votes
Hi friends,

I'm attempting something rather goofy in trying to have a DAW and Wwise speak together a little bit via scripting.  I can easily generate audio files via scripting in a DAW, and I'm trying to wrap my head around the best/easiest way to import these automatically into Wwise - effectively bypassing a step for the user clicking "import".

Friends who have done this via text files have pointed me at the Wwise .wwu files, as they are editable XML.  I've discovered I can edit the .wwu's by hand and on making Wwise the active window the project will regenerate with the events I've added.

However, each event/container/etc comes with its own unique ID and short ID.  If these are generated externally and follow the convention set out in the XML ({XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX} for a unique ID for example) will that break Wwise?  Is there another, more legitimate way to automatically do this?  I'm not against programming if need be :)
