MBFS file - Stardent AVS X bitmap image file

What is mbfs file? How to open mbfs files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

mbfs file icon: mbfs filetype icon

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

An *.mbfs 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.

Help how to open:

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .mbfs file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
