In this video form the Steinberg YouTube channel, they make it sound so easy to export things from Nuendo and get Wwise to “pick up” the sounds and automatically launch the Wwise import window. According to the video, as long as the folder you export to is the same as the one set in the Nuendo Connection Settings window in Wwise, it should work. But it doesn’t. Nuendo exports the files (it’s a set of 30 cycle markers) to the correct folder but Wwise, even though it’s running at the time, doesn’t react whatsoever (the import window doesn’t open, nothing).
I’m running Nuendo 8 and Wwise on the same computer, so this is not a network setup. My Game Audio Connect window in Nuendo indicates that it is indeed aware of and connected to Wwise on my computer (the window says “Wwise”)
At first I set the export folder to be my Wwise/Originals/SFX folder becuase that’s where all the sounds are going anyway. It didn’t work. So I thought maybe the GAC functionality requires Nuendo’s export folder to be a separate folder just for the exchange of files (even though the aforementioned video doesn’t say anything about that) so I changed the folder to one outside of my Wwise folder - but that didn’t help.
I pressed F1 in Nuendo which took me to this help text on Steinberg’s website but it doesn’t give any useful information at all as to what is actually required for GAC to work: https://steinberg.help/nuendo/v8/en/cubase_nuendo/topics/game_audio_connect/game_audio_connect_exporting_audio_assets_to_a_game_audio_engine_c.html
I’ve also searched “wwise” on this forum and it didn’t come up with many useful links except for this thread which didn’t give me any useful information at all: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=240&t=97354&p=538424&hilit=wwise#p538424
This page on Audiokinetic’s website (the developers of Wwise) doesn’t help either: https://www.audiokinetic.com/library/edge/?source=Help&id=game_audio_connect_settings
