About Audio conversion

0 votes
Hey !

I'm kinda confused because I converted my audio files in Vorbis and saved the project. If I compare the original size VS the converted inside the wwise project, the size went down around 70%. But when I go inside the wwiseproject folder/originals/SFX, it's all .wav and the folder's size is nearly 1 gigabyte. Did I miss something ?

Thank you

Hey Valentin,

The Originals folder is only used for imported audio files. This way, you can always convert from the original source, and don't loose it once pressing convert. Instead, all the converted media files will be located in the .cache folder.

You can learn much more about it here:
