Here are 2 simple steps to convert your OBJ to GIF (Animated) using our fast and free OBJ converter tool.

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.
As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.
OBJ Converter Capabilities
Our OBJ 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within OBJ files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

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 OBJ 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 OBJ file to upload. Your OBJ file will be uploaded to our servers. When the OBJ to GIF (Animated) conversion has completed, you can download your GIF (Animated) file straight away.
We aim to process all OBJ 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 OBJ 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.
