TIFF, which stands for Tagged Image File Format, is a widely-used file format for storing raster graphics and images with high-quality and lossless compression. It was developed in the mid-1980s by Aldus Corporation, later acquired by Adobe Systems. One of the key features of TIFF is its ability to support a variety of color depths, including monochrome, grayscale, and full-color RGB and CMYK images. Moreover, TIFF files can also be created with multiple layers and pages, making them suitable for desktop publishing and image editing applications.

The TIFF format utilizes tags to store metadata and other information about the image, allowing for flexibility and compatibility across different platforms and software applications. This metadata can include details about the image resolution, color space, compression type, author information, and more. Due to its lossless compression, TIFF files maintain the highest image quality possible, making them an ideal choice for archiving, printing, and professional graphic design work.

While TIFF files offer exceptional image fidelity, they tend to be larger in size compared to other compressed image formats like JPEG. As a result, they might not be as suitable for web use or sharing on platforms where file size is a concern. Nevertheless, the versatility and quality of TIFF files make them an essential format in various industries, including photography, printing, and graphic design, where image accuracy and precision are paramount.

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 TIFF to OBJ

Our TIFF converter will convert your TIFF 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
