Here are 2 simple steps to convert your TAR to FBX using our fast and free TAR converter tool.
A TAR file, short for Tape Archive, is a type of computer file format used for archiving and bundling multiple files together into a single file. It is often used in Unix and Unix-like operating systems but can be found and used on other platforms as well. The TAR format does not perform compression by itself; it simply collects multiple files and directories into one unit, maintaining their individual properties such as file permissions, timestamps, and ownership information. Because of this, TAR files are commonly used as a container for transferring and storing files while preserving their original attributes.
When creating a TAR file, all the specified files and directories are gathered and stored sequentially in the archive, which is later used for distribution, backup, or transportation. The TAR format is particularly useful for creating backups, as it enables easy preservation of directory structures and metadata. However, since TAR files are not compressed, they tend to be larger than their compressed counterparts like ZIP or GZIP archives. As a result, it is common to combine TAR files with compression algorithms (like GZIP or BZIP2) to create compressed TAR archives (e.g., .tar.gz or .tar.bz2) that reduce file size while maintaining the original structure and information.

FBX (Filmbox) is a file format developed by Autodesk that is widely used in the 3D modeling and animation industry. It serves as a platform-independent, open file format that allows for the exchange of 3D data between different software applications. This interchange format is particularly popular in the fields of animation, virtual reality, and game development due to its ability to preserve complex 3D scenes, including geometry, textures, animations, and camera movements.
FBX files store 3D data in a structured manner, using a combination of binary and ASCII data. The binary data efficiently represents the geometry and other scene elements, while the ASCII data contains metadata and other scene information. This combination allows for a balance between file size and human-readable content, making it suitable for both storage and collaboration purposes.
Moreover, FBX files support a wide range of 3D software applications, including Autodesk's own products like Maya and 3ds Max, as well as other popular software like Blender and Unity. This compatibility makes FBX a versatile format for sharing 3D assets and projects across different platforms and workflows, contributing to its status as an industry-standard file format in the world of 3D content creation.
Our TAR archive converter will examine the contents of your TAR file and will look for any 3D model file that it may contain and this, once found, will be extracted and converted to a 3D FBX file ready for download.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TAR file to upload. Your TAR file will be uploaded to our servers. When the TAR to FBX conversion has completed, you can download your FBX file straight away.
We aim to process all TAR to FBX 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.
