Description

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.

Description

The IDTF file format is a bespoke format that enables interactive 3D content to be embedded within a PDF document. Currently only Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange Editor are able to render PDF documents that contain this 3D content.

IDTF files are a simple text-based format containing 3D geometry defined using vertices and faces in a structured hierarchy. Prior to importing the IDTF file to the PDF it must be converted to a U3D file format using one of the free applications such as IDTFConverter.
