HEIC stands for High Efficiency Image File Format, which is a file format used to store images and image sequences. It was introduced by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) as part of the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard. HEIC files are designed to offer superior compression capabilities compared to traditional image formats like JPEG, resulting in smaller file sizes without compromising image quality. This format is especially popular among Apple devices, as it allows them to store and display images using less storage space while maintaining high visual fidelity.

The HEIC format employs advanced compression algorithms to achieve its efficiency, such as a more efficient way of storing pixel data, support for both lossy and lossless compression, and the ability to store multiple images or sequences in a single file (similar to a container format). While this format excels in reducing file sizes, one downside is that not all devices and software support it natively. However, most modern devices and operating systems, especially those from Apple, have integrated HEIC support, and there are various third-party tools available for converting HEIC files to more widely supported formats like JPEG, ensuring compatibility across different platforms.

In conclusion, HEIC is an advanced image file format known for its high efficiency in compression, which results in smaller file sizes and reduced storage consumption while preserving image quality. Its popularity is mainly attributed to its adoption by Apple devices, but it has gained broader recognition due to its impressive compression capabilities. As technology continues to evolve, wider support for the HEIC format is likely to increase, making it a viable option for users seeking to optimize their image storage and sharing experiences.

The OBJ file format is a 3D graphics file format used to define complex 3D models, including geometry, materials, and textures. OBJ files are text files, making them human-readable and easy to modify by hand. The downside to this ease of readability is that the files can become rather large when dealing with large or complex 3D models.

As mentioned, the OBJ format stores not only 3D model geometry but also materials and textures. These materials are usually defined in a separate file with the MTL file extension and specify geometry rendering details such as diffuse and specular color, transparency, and much more.

The OBJ material file can also reference external texture files. These are usually JPEG or PNG files; however, these can be older formats, such as TGA. Where materials are used, the OBJ file will also contain material names preceding the geometry faces they should be applied to. If textures are referenced, the geometry will also contain texture coordinates (UV) for each vertex.

Information for converting from HEIC to OBJ

Our HEIC converter will convert your HEIC file to a 3D model using the Heightmap process whereby 2D pixels, based on their luminosity, are converted into 3D space to create a full 3D OBJ model ready for download for further processing in your favourite 3D editing package or for printing on a 3D printer.

Frequently Asked Questions
