Why does articulate RISE/ST convert file names?

Anybody ever wondered why both RISE and Storyline convert asset file names in to massively long winded different file names. ie - import a picture with a file name of "house.png" and it gets converted to something like "jCALcdepUkDdmIKu_3AMwgu52julw_KFi.png"

Making life very difficult for us articulate! Thanks a bunch.

This becomes an even larger issue when working with web exports of Rise projects and uploading them to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). Length of filenames (folder structure length implied) can be problematic and for our own team, PDF attachment auto-renames by Articulate have caused us issues resulting in failed uploads because of one PDF file name length. We are able to work around them, but it's still inconvenient.
