File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

avs file icon: avs filetype icon

The avs file extension is related to a very old program called Application Visualization Software (AVS) that was sold by Stardent in early 90s.

An *.avs file is bitmap image crated in AVS.

The AVS image format is pretty straightforward. It consists of an 8 byte header followed by a,r,g,b per pixel, ordered top to bottom, left to right. (a == alpha, r == red, g = reen, b == blue) Each colour/alpha component is 1 unsigned byte. The header simply consists of the width and height of the image, each as 4 byte unsigned integers.

Note the format assumes a byte ordering as per SGI/Macintosh/Motorola processors, if reading an AVS image from a machine with the opposite byte ordering then the appropriate byte swapping is required.
