A WRL file, also known as a Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) file, is a plain text file format used to represent 3D models and scenes for virtual reality applications. Developed in the mid-1990s, WRL files are utilized to describe the geometry, appearance, and interactions of objects within a virtual environment. These files contain a structured set of nodes that define various components, such as shapes, materials, transformations, and viewpoints, which collectively create a coherent 3D scene. WRL files were popular for web-based virtual reality experiences in the early days of the internet and played a crucial role in the development of interactive 3D content for online applications.

Each node in a WRL file represents a specific element of the 3D scene and includes attributes that define its characteristics. For instance, nodes can specify the shape of an object (e.g., cubes, spheres, or complex meshes), its position and orientation in the virtual space, its visual appearance through materials and textures, and even its behavior through animations or interactive features. The flexibility and extensibility of the VRML language allowed for the creation of diverse and immersive virtual reality experiences that could be accessed through compatible web browsers or specialized VRML viewers.

Although WRL files were widely used in the past, they have largely been replaced by more modern 3D file formats like OBJ (Wavefront Object) or glTF (GL Transmission Format). These newer formats offer better performance, compression, and support for advanced features, making them more suitable for contemporary virtual reality and 3D applications. Nonetheless, WRL files still hold historical significance as a pioneering standard that contributed to the early exploration and adoption of 3D content on the web and laid the groundwork for the evolution of virtual reality technologies.

FBX files are an open 3D file format developed by Autodesk for use with their Maya and 3Ds Max applications. An FBX file may contain any number of 3D objects, their associated geometry, materials, textures, animations, and more, all within a single convenient package.

The content of an FBX file is a mix of binary and ASCII text, producing a format that is both human-readable and compact. Due to their compact size, ease of use, and widespread support, FBX files are a popular choice for creating 3D animations and are also a staple in the videogame development scene.

The development of the FBX format continues to this day, with new features being included in each release. Along with being used within Autodesk's own editing solutions, FBX files can also be opened and edited in other popular 3D modelling applications, such as Blender.
