Note on naming:

- camelCaseNaming is used by Maya as a default, and can be nice and compact while

remaining easy to read.

- using_underscores_in_names makes the name longer, but can be useful if you want to

check parts of the name for specific prefixes or suffixes, similar to how you can use

the suffixes _low and _high in many baking programs to identify meshes.

- Keeping filenames lowercase and using underscores can be useful if your system is

case sensitive.

- Systematically using prefixes can keep your projects neat and organized!
