"Alias Model"

Postby Baker » Mon May 09, 2011 3:47 pm

Why in the Quake source code are q1 models referred to as "alias models"?

Just curious as to the origin of the name, what it meant or why it was termed that way.

The models were made in Alias PowerAnimator (now aquired by Autodesk of 3DS Max fame)

Power Animator became Maya (for the cg part) and Studio Tools (for the CAD/CAM drawing part)in late 90s (1997 IIRC)
