File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The xaf file extension is mainly related to Microsoft's Active VRML. Virtual Reality Modeling Language is a proposal built on top Microsoft's Direct X suite of graphics/multimedia APIs, and also incorporates Microsoft's Visual Basic Script, and Microsoft's Reactive Behavior Modeling Language.

The special features of Active VRML are:

  • All objects implicitly vary with time, and time can be included as a parameter when describing an object's behavior.
  • Interactivity is built in because objects have reactivity and can switch from one time varying behavior to another.
  • All media are equal, and therefore can be combined to form composite objects such as a shape with a sound that moves, or a shape with a moving surface.
  • All existing file formats can be included inside Active VRML.

How to convert:

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.
