Automatically rename container based on content?

0 votes


I had a look in Wwise and online but didn't find anything about that. Is there a way to automatically rename containers based on their content?

Basically, if I have




And I right click on those three > new parent > any container (say a Random Container, in that case), the parent container will be named "New Random Container".

Is there a way for it to be named directly "Character_Voice" based on how the items inside it are named?

If not, is that a feature that could be considered for a future update? That would save tons of time when dealing with hundreds files of dialogue.

This functionality does not exist directly in Wwise. However, it can be implemented quite easily with WAAPI. For the demonstration, I added the auto-rename-container in the waapi-python-tool
