Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a WRL (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) 3D model file and from this, create an animated GIF (Animated) (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 (Animated) file from a WRL file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your WRL file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the WRL to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all WRL 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 WRL file you submit to us. The resulting GIF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our WRL 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 WRL 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 WRL file format is a 3D based model format originally created in the 1990's which was aimed at website usage. The format is text based and contains 3D geometry data such as vertices, faces, simple shapes and material information and more.
This format when launched was hoped to become a standard 3D format, however due to the large file sizes it didn't see wide spread adoption although it is a supported format within some CAD software applications. It was later superseded by the X3D file format which shares most of the functionality of WRL files.
If your WRL file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.

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 upto 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.
