Where all of your content medias are

Smode handles data -- pictures, videos, 3d objects and Smode documents -- through the concept of media directories. A media directory is a shortcut to local hard-drive location. Every link to a data in Smode is stored as a relative path to one of those media directories.
Thanks to this system of relative paths, Smode documents can be copied or moved from one computer to another one even if the hard-drive paths differ.
By default, Smode has the three following media directories:
  • Standard Pack: The Standard Pack is used for internal Smode usage like presets, previews and helper meshes. This media directory should never be removed.
  • Features : This media directory contains simple compositions illustrating Smode features.
  • Examples : This media directory contains more advanced examples of what's possible to do with Smode.

At any time, Smode maintains a cache of previews and meta-datas of everything contained by the media directories. This enables to have previews and cached metadata for every file.
