|Full Name||Universal Scene Description|
A USD file, which stands for Universal Scene Description, is a powerful and versatile file format and interchange mechanism for 3D computer graphics and animation. Developed by Pixar Animation Studios, USD is designed to streamline the collaboration and sharing of 3D assets and scenes across different software applications and workflows. It serves as a container that can encapsulate various elements of a 3D scene, including geometry, shading, animation, and more, making it an ideal choice for large-scale, complex projects in the entertainment and visual effects industries.
USD employs a concept known as "composition" to represent a scene. Instead of storing everything in a single monolithic file, it allows for the assembly of scenes from many modular, reusable components. This component-based approach not only reduces redundancy but also enhances collaboration by enabling multiple artists to work on different aspects of a scene simultaneously. USD files use a highly efficient layering system, enabling artists to override or extend existing scenes without modifying the original data, which is crucial for non-destructive workflows.
USD has gained widespread adoption in the entertainment industry, with various software packages supporting it, including 3D modeling and animation applications like Maya and Houdini. This widespread support has made it easier for studios and artists to work together, as they can seamlessly exchange USD files containing all the necessary information for a scene, from geometry and materials to lighting and animation, without worrying about compatibility issues, making it a crucial part of modern 3D content creation pipelines.

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.
Your USD file will be converted to a OBJ file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our USD 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As USD supports color materials and OBJ does not, our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your USD file to upload. Your USD file will be uploaded to our servers. When the USD to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all USD 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.
