Path Aliases

In this section, up to five favorite archive and ten import paths can be set. These are accessible through Viz Artist’s Archive and Import panes.


  • Name: Sets the path alias name for the archive or import path.

  • Path: Sets the archive or import path which can be a local drive, mapped drive or a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path.

    IMPORTANT! Make sure the archive folder is configured with read and write access rights.

To Add a Path

  1. Enter a descriptive name in the Name field.

  2. Enter a path in the path field, or click the Browse button to navigate and select a path.

  3. Assign a type. Options are:

    • Fonts

    • Images

    • Geometries

    • Scenes

    • Audio

    • Archives

    • Videos

    • Substances
      In this way, when clicking on an alias before a file is imported, the import window automatically opens the designated folder and switches to the assigned type.

  4. Click Save.
