X file extension - Stardent AVS X bitmap image

What is x file? How to open x files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

x file icon: x filetype icon

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

The x 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.

This x file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
