File Converter

The File Converter application can be used to convert files into the default ASCII format to load into Visual3D.

The ASCII file converter may be downloaded from the C-Motion Free Downloads page.

Input files written in any plain text format may be loaded into the file converter (txt, csv, ascii, trc, ...).
To check if your file may be read by the File Converter program, open the file using Notepad++ and see if the information is read correctly.

Current version: File Converter 2.3.1.15
