|Full Name||Truevision TGA|
A TGA file, also known as a Truevision Graphics Adapter file, is a raster image file format primarily used to store images with high color depth and alpha channel transparency. Developed by Truevision Inc., TGA files are commonly used in computer graphics, animation, and video game development. These files can support a variety of pixel formats, such as 8-bit, 16-bit, 24-bit, and 32-bit, allowing them to store images with different levels of color precision.
TGA files are well-suited for projects that require detailed and complex visuals, as they maintain image quality without significant loss in compression. The format's support for an alpha channel makes it ideal for images that require transparency, enabling overlaying of graphics on top of other elements seamlessly. TGA files are also compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, making them a versatile choice for cross-platform applications.
Although TGA files offer various advantages, they tend to have larger file sizes compared to some other image formats, which can be a limitation when dealing with limited storage or bandwidth. Additionally, while TGA files are widely used in specific industries, they are not as common for general web usage, where formats like JPEG and PNG are more prevalent due to their smaller file sizes and broader browser support. Nonetheless, TGA files remain a valuable choice for projects that demand high-quality images and advanced transparency capabilities.

An OBJ file is a widely used file format in 3D computer graphics that serves as a standard representation for 3D models. It stands for "Object" and was originally developed by Wavefront Technologies. OBJ files store geometric data, such as vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, and face information, describing the surface of a 3D object. This data is presented in plain text, making OBJ files human-readable and easy to exchange between various 3D modeling and rendering software.
The structure of an OBJ file is based on vertices (points in 3D space), which form the building blocks of the 3D model's shape. These vertices are organized into faces, typically triangles or quads, representing the surfaces of the object. Alongside the geometric data, OBJ files can also include material information, enabling the application of textures and shaders to the 3D model, providing it with color, reflectivity, and other visual properties.
Due to its simplicity and compatibility across different software platforms, the OBJ file format has become a popular choice for sharing 3D models. However, being a relatively basic format, OBJ files may not support complex features found in more advanced formats like animation data or high-level shader definitions. Despite this limitation, OBJ remains a widely adopted format in various industries, including gaming, animation, virtual reality, and 3D printing.
Our TGA converter will convert your TGA 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.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TGA file to upload. Your TGA file will be uploaded to our servers. When the TGA to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all TGA to OBJ 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.
Our tool uses a Heightmap process whereby the OBJ 3D model is created based on the luminosity of the individual pixels in you TGA image.
Yes, to ensure our tool converts the TGA image quickly and with a reasonable final file size, your tool will resize any image larger than 600x600 pixels.
