Tag - Alias
Depending on your age, when you hear the word "alias," you either think of J.J. Abrams and Jennifer Garner, or you think of Hannibal Hayes and Kid Curry. Somewhere between those two, though, there came Apple's version of aliases, which weirdly became better known on PCs when Microsoft took the idea, and made "shortcuts" (so innovative!). Microsoft made the better, clearer name, but when they took the concept they didn't read to the end. OS X aliases do everything shortcuts do, and a significant amount more, to help you manage files on your Mac. It's a shame that more of us don't use them.
Autodesk has finally brought its Alias design and rendering suite to Macs. Though well-known, the software was previously only available for the Windows platform, limiting its practical application in an industry where Mac software is relatively common. A senior product marketing manager at Autdoesk, Rob Hoffmann, is however known to have said the Mac is no more or less important than Windows or Linux.
