FLI_ file extension - Autodesk Animator FLIC animation old format

What is fli_ file? How to open fli_ files?

File type specification:

Digital video and movie file type icon Digital video and movie file type

This is the format developed by AutoDesk that is designed for storing brief animations. FLI is limited to images 320 by 200 pixels and allows a palette of 256 colors (although the palette can be changed from line to line to give more colors per frame). FLI is based on a fixed frame rate specified in "ticks per frame" (there are 70 ticks per second), and has an implicit 6:5 aspect ratio. In theory, all FLI animations must loop, but in practice this requirement is often ignored. The image data in FLI files is compressed using a Run-length compression scheme. This is suitable for animations, but is inappropriate for videos or dithered images. The FLI format has largely been superseded by its close cousin, (but more flexible) FLC format.

The FLI_ file extension was used on old versions of Mac OS.
