Unreal integration: Wwise Spatial Audio portals wont show up in the 3D viewer

0 votes

I'm attempting to follow this tutorial: https://www.audiokinetic.com/library/edge/?source=UE4&id=usingwwisespatialaudio.html

In the Unity spatial audio tutorial I can see portals are supposed to show up in Wwise's 3D viewer, however this doesn't seem to work from the Unreal integration. I've checked both the Spatial Audio > Wire Frame and Portal Info in the Game Object 3D Viewer Settings window, am I missing something?

EDIT: the portals don't show up in the Game Object Explorer either, I'm not sure whether they're supposed to or not.

I'm using UE 4.18.3 and Wwise 2017.2.1.6524.

Thanks :)

As it turns out, portals are visible in the Game Object 3D Viewer only if they're checked in the Profiler Settings (Spatial Audio options are at the very bottom), as explained here: https://www.audiokinetic.com/library/edge/?source=Help&id=profiler_settings
