The default format for the Save command is WIRE, which is the normal Alias binary file format. The Wire Options section displays by default.
Programmers can access wire files via the Alias OpenModel library. From within Alias you may open an older wire version. By renaming older wire files you will keep the older file format version and begin working in the latest version of Alias. Supported entities include surfaces, curves, and poly(gon) sets.
If toggled ON, all file texture and environment images used in a scene are embedded into the wire file. This improves your ability to move files around without losing texture and environment images required to render the scene.
Extract embedded images using .
If toggled ON, texture and environment images from the installed visualization library are embedded into the wire file. Recommended for file sharing with users running older versions of Alias.
If toggled ON, the wire file is optimized for viewing in the StudioViewer™ application.
As well, a large icon file (with extension .ICON) is created automatically for viewing in PortfolioWall™.
