How can I set an Automation of 3D Panner's Min Distance via fmod parameter?


If I use a parameter such as “Audio DyanmicScale” or “FMOD Scale” etc,
can I make an automation controlling Min & Max Distance of 3D Panner?
I just figure out I can make an automation controlling Sound Size, Min Extent and Pan overide mix.
I think, Min distance and Max distance’s Automation will be more useful than Sound Size, Min extent or pan overide mix, if possible it is.

I would love to know how to do this as well. It’d be so cool to be able to automate min/max distance as a param.

Thanks for your question. You cannot currently automate min & max distance of the 3D panner (this item is on our backlog). However, you can set these values programmatically using Studio::EventInstance::setProperty() with FMOD_STUDIO_EVENT_PROPERTY_MINIMUM_DISTANCE and FMOD_STUDIO_EVENT_PROPERTY_MAXIMUM_DISTANCE to set the min and max distance respectively.

See for more information.
