TER TER Terragen File

TER (Terragen Terrain File) is a proprietary file format native to Terragen, a natural terrain scenery authoring software. It allows for an easy triangular or quad mesh description with the additional metadata for the terrain recognition industry. Autoconverter and Automesher Application, our TER file converters can read and import TER terrain data thanks to the open asset import library. The imported terrain data can be easily converted into your native 3D file format thanks to the elevated 3D file export possibilities of our Autoconverter software.


PLY (Polygon File Format or Stanford Triangle Format) is a file format developed to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, normals, transparency or texture coordinates. However, Autoconverter our PLY file converter can only read and write mesh geometry without the material properties, as in the PLY file they can vary between triangle vertices. You can save PLY files in a binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the binary version due to a significant PLY file size saving.
