Discreet Render Format (DRF) is a file format for modeling and rendering games and animation design. It is used exclusively by 3ds Max (3D Studio Max) to create 3D content and graphic scenes. The main advantage of this file type is its open architecture, which makes the file type adaptable and supports improvements.

How to open a DRF file?

As stated above, the only software program available to open DRF is 3ds Max (3D Studio Max). The company Autodesk sells this program, but a free trial period is available.

You can use FreeConvert.com’s DRF to JPG to convert DRF files to JPG, which is a more common file type that most platforms support.

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a type of bitmap file format that relies on pixels to form simple images using the RGB color model. Unlike the uncompressed BMP file format, GIF uses lossless compression and supports animation without audio. The most common use of GIF is in animated form as advertisements, emotion-based replies on social media, and memes, which often go viral on the Internet. 

How to open a GIF file?

Almost all web browsers support GIF, which gives it a distinct advantage over other image formats, such as PNG. Furthermore, GIF opens on Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone and iPad, which makes it more popular than Adobe Flash.


GIFs open easily on almost all image-viewer applications, web browsers, and operating systems. To open a GIF for the purposes of editing it, use an application such as Adobe Photoshop. On Windows, open GIFs with Microsoft Photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, and others. On macOS, use Adobe image viewers and editors, including Adobe Illustrator.
