Is the same 200 assets limitation in Limited Commercial version of Wwise?
Wwise LTX is a “Light” version of Wwise. It does not have a 200 sound limit for your project, however the authoring tool has been simplified and several advanced features removed. In order to provide this tool completely free for our users this is what Amazon and Audiokinetic agreed upon, an easier more focused version of their great product.
Wwise LTX may not be well suited to every game project, but it would certainly get game developers started with a high-quality audio middleware. If you feel you can live with the 200 sound limit and want to use the full-featured version of Wwise for free, that’s totally up to you. Upgrading a project from Wwise LTX to full is easy too, just remember that this is a one-way street. There isn’t a way to convert projects back to Wwise LTX, so stash a copy somewhere before you try upgrading.
Please check the Wwise LTX documentation for more information about the features it supports by pressing F1 in the authoring tool.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your answer!
Though I don’t quite get the “Wwise LTX” can’t open normal “Wwise” project thing. (Just to prevent user exchange project between those 2 version?"
The reason is simply that Wwise LTX is a simplified version of the authoring tool, it isn’t aware of advanced features and data that you find in Wwise vanilla. So it’s not going to be able to understand the project xml data. You can think of Wwise vanilla as a superset of Wwise LTX, so it will be able to upgrade an LTX project because there’s really nothing in LTX it doesn’t understand.
That make sense! Thank a lot for your answer!
I get a little confuse, so, as you said: Wwise LTX is a “Light” version of Wwise. It (which is free) does not have a 200 sound limit for your project.
You also said: If you feel you can live with the 200 sound limit (mm… but you said the Wwise LTX doesn’t has this litmit?) and want to use the full-featured version of Wwise for free (so Wwise LTX is the full-featured version of Wwise for free?, but how can a “Light” version be full-featured?), that’s totally up to you.
He meant if you didn’t want to use Wwise LTX and instead use the full featured vesion then you can upgrade but you would have to deal with the 200 sound limit in the upgraded version.
