Remove absolute paths from Soundbank txt files

0 votes
Inside the txt file that is generated alongside a soundbank, there is a list of streamed audio that refers to the audio source file by an absolute path. For example:
C:\Users\Me\myWwiseProject\.cache\Windows\SFX\SomeFile.wem

The audio engineer on my project uses these txt files in their workflow. Due to the fact that we both generate sound banks on our machines, I would like to keep these text files under source control to ensure we both have the most up to date data and I'd like to keep the soundbanks under source control so that the rest of the time doesn't need to be concerned with generating soundbanks locally.
 
These absolute paths can cause merge conflicts. Is it possible to configure these txt files to use relative paths instead?

It is currently not possible to configure those files to use relative path. You raise a valid point regarding this as a limitation to versioning.

I will convert this post to a feature request.
