Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) 3D model file and from this, create an animated MP4 (MPEG-4) file that you can then download and share without the need for any complex 3D modelling software.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an MP4 file from a DAE file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DAE file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DAE to MP4 conversion has completed, you can download your MP4 file straight away.
We aim to process all DAE to MP4 conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the DAE file you submit to us. The resulting MP4 file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DAE to MP4 tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our DAE conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes and 3D worlds using a simple text based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.
DAE files are a text/Xml based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to the format.
If your DAE file contains textures (which are separate files), these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
The MP4 video format is a standard format for video encoding and storage. In order to minimize the file sizes the format employs a lossy compression method which reduces the amount of data to store the video content without any noticeable loss in quality.
Due to their small size and efficient compression methods the MP4 format is ideally suited to online video streaming. The MP4 format may use a variety of CODECs which are usually supported by most MP4 players with additional CODECs downloadable if needed.
