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

Autodesk Animator animation old format (Autodesk FLIC format), a 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.

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.
