GLTF to FBX Conversion

The list below provides valuable resources, packed with detailed instructions and expert tips for converting GLTF files to FBX format using our converters. Review them now to simplify your GLTF files conversion later.


GLB Graphics Language Transmission File

A file format developed and maintained by the Khronos Group organization. It is designed to facilitate the efficient storage and exchange of 3D models. It has the following features:

  • Khronos Group: Khronos Group is a consortium of industry leaders that creates open standards for graphics, media, and parallel computing. This organization developed the GLTF file format.
  • GLTF Versions: There are two versions of the GLTF file format that are available:
    • GLTF 1.0: Supports basic geometry, simple materials with textures, basic skeletal animations with joint hierarchies, scenes with a single root node and a hierarchy of child nodes, etc.
    • GLTF 2.0: Supports more features, such as PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials, Draco compression, advanced skeletal animations, skinning, morph targets, etc.
  • ASCII and Binary Modes: By default, a GLTF file is saved in ASCII text mode, which is human-readable and easy to edit. To save a GLTF file with all referenced texture images in binary mode, the GLB file extension should be used. This reduces the file size and the number of files.
  • GLTF Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow you to import and export GLTF and GLB files, and convert them into various other 3D file formats. Our products also support the use of Draco compression, which can significantly reduce the size of GLTF and GLB files without compromising visual fidelity.

FBX Filmbox File

A proprietary file format that was originally created by Kaydara and is now owned by Autodesk, a leading company in 3D software products. Some of the benefits and features of FBX files are:

  • Transparent Colors and Texture Images: FBX files can store transparent colors and texture images, providing a rich and detailed visual experience.
  • Reusable Geometry Components: The FBX format allows for the storage of reusable geometry components, enhancing efficiency and consistency across models.
  • Assembly Structures: FBX supports the storage of assembly structures with hierarchical relationships between objects, enabling complex and detailed 3D modeling.
  • Model Animation Data: FBX can even store model animation data, although this feature is not currently supported by all software.
  • FBX File Converters: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your FBX files. They utilize the official FBX SDK from Autodesk that ensures compatibility and efficiency.
