Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my TGA file to OBJ?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your TGA file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the TGA to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my TGA to OBJ?

We aim to process all TGA to OBJ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.

How accurate is the TGA to OBJ conversion?

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.

Is it safe to convert my TGA to OBJ on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the TGA file you submit to us. The resulting OBJ file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert TGA to OBJ on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our TGA to OBJ tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our TGA 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.

What is the maximum TGA image resolution I can upload?

The TGA image you upload can be any size, however our tool will resize it to a maximum of 800x800 pixels for normal users and for premium subscription holders this is increased to a maximum of 1200x1200 pixels.

Will the OBJ file retain the textures from my TGA file?

Yes! If your TGA file contains textured geometry, the texture image files along with the texture coordinates (UV data) will be exported with the final OBJ file.

Description

The TGA format was originally defined in 1984 by AT&T EPICenter and later became Truevision following a successful buyout. The format is a raster graphics format for use originally with high-end PC graphics cards intended for use in video editing with the format mainly supporting NTSC and PAL video resolutions.

The format stores images in various levels of color depth starting at 2-bits-per-pixel (bpp) all the way to 32-bit where color would occupy 24-bits with the final 8-bits dedicated to the alpha channel. The format of the file is fairly simple compared to other formats of the time such as BMP and TIFF.

Description

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.

As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.

OBJ Notes

Our tool will save any material and texture files separately, these additional files will be included with your final OBJ file at the time of download.
