I’m trying to simulate some aspects of using event tempates in FMOD Designer by having a base event (e.g., a generic jet engine type sound) that is then used as a nested event for different types of engines. Being nested, the parent event can apply pitch shifting and so on, to produce variants of the base event while using the basic engine and “air woosh” in each case.
This is all fine but, one aspect of the events I’m working on uses a sustain point on the timeline in the base i.e., the nested, event. I’m using timeline automation to apply a high pass filter where its cut-off rises as the event fades (so it fizzes into nothing).
I can access the CueInstance of the original event but can’t see how in the API I can access a nested event from the parent and then access its CueInstance. I thought at firts it would be Studio::EventInstance::createSubEvent() but this is for sub-events rather than nested events.
Is this event possible? Or can I pass the cue message some other way?
