CSM Character Studio Marker File

A proprietary file format for Character Studio, a software developed by Autodesk for creating 3D animation content with an internal bone structure. Character Studio is a tool that allows you to create realistic and expressive 3D characters, using a skeleton system and motion capture data. Here are some of the key features and benefits of CSM:

  • Bone and Marker Information: CSM is a unique and advanced format for 3D animation content, as it can store not only the geometric information of the 3D meshes, but also the bone and marker information of the 3D characters. Bones are the internal structure that define the shape and movement of the 3D characters, while markers are the external points that can be attached to the bones and used to track the motion of the 3D characters. Bones and markers can help you create realistic and expressive 3D animations.
  • CSM File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application can load and import CSM mesh data, thanks to the open asset import library. Our software enables you to effortlessly convert and save the imported character CSM data into your primary 3D file format, such as FBX, DAE, STL, SKP, OBJ, and others, making it ready for processing in your preferred 3D modeling software.

X3D Extensible 3D File

An open-source and royalty-free XML based format that was developed by the Web3D Consortium. X3D has many applications and benefits for the 3D graphics industry, especially in relation to web applications. Here are some of the key features and advantages of X3D:

  • VRML Replacement: X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language, and it was a standard format for describing interactive 3D scenes on the web.
  • X3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application seamlessly handle X3D file import and export, ensuring smooth data exchange and compatibility. This enables you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, STEP, and more, to X3D and vice versa.
  • X3DB File Format: For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file. X3DB is a compressed version of X3D, which reduces the file size and improves the loading speed, an important factor for web applications.
