In this video, explore how to maintain links between files.
- [Instructor] 3D file formats require special attention…to asset management, which is a system…for organizing different file types, such as models,…material libraries, source images, and rendered output.…Nearly all 3D programs have some form…of asset management built in.…A common setup for a digital content creation app…is a project folder structure.…Different file types are stored in specially named folders…within a master folder or project.…
Project folders have many advantages.…The most fundamental of these…is the preservation of links between files.…A scene file must load a material texture file…in order to render an image.…If the texture is stored in the proper location…within the project, it should always be found.…Project folders generally use relative paths.…The location of the master project folder is not important.…All that matters is that the source files, such as textures,…are in their designated sub-folders within the project.…
This means that the entire project folder can be moved…or renamed, and the links inside the project are preserved.…
