The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes and 3D worlds using a simple text based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.
DAE files are a text/Xml based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to the format.

|Full Name||Graphics Interchange Format|
GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes upto 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
The DAE 3D format does not support animations within our conversion tool so our tool will create a simple 360 degree rotating 3D animation that will be rendered to a GIF file ready for download.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DAE file to upload. Your DAE file will be uploaded to our servers. When the DAE to GIF (Animated) conversion has completed, you can download your GIF (Animated) file straight away.
We aim to process all DAE to GIF (Animated) conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
If your DAE file contains an animation then our tool will create a GIF (Animated) file containing the full length animation. If there is no animation present our tool will use a simple rotation animation.
