Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a FBX (Autodesk Filmbox) 3D model file and from this, create an animated GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) 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 GIF file from a FBX file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a FBX to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to GIF" button to convert your FBX to GIF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your FBX file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the FBX to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all FBX to GIF 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 FBX file you submit to us. The resulting GIF file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our FBX to GIF 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 FBX 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.
Our tool can read binary FBX versions 7.0 and above and text formatted FBX files version 6.4 and above. Please ensure your FBX version meets these requirements before uploading.
The FBX format by AutoDesk was originally developed by Kaydara in the 1990s as a means to store 2D or 3D content with motion data. It has evolved over the years to become a widely used format by 3D modelling applications such as Blender, 3D Studio Max and others due to its 3D animation capabilities.
The format is used to contain 3D models which includes vertices, faces and other 3D geometry along with animation data. The format is proprietary however there is a publicly available API to use for development purposes. The file contents can be either text or binary and work has been carried out by the Blender Foundation to document the format.
If your FBX file contains texture files and other texture related data, these will be included in the conversion process.
GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes up to 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
