what is a .pns file?

The PNS file extension is used to label stereoscopic images which are used for creating 3D effects from 2D images. Creating stereoscopic images involves making use of two PNG files and placing them side by side while adjusting the color variants from to red and blue or red and green, after which it is processed into a rendering software. This technique has been known long ago and was one of the first 3D modeling techniques developed. Numerous programs are known to create stereoscopic images through the use of PNS files. To view and manage PNS file extensions, You may make use of programs that support stereoscopic imaging such as NVIDIA 3D Photo Viewer, Zyk, Zoner Photo studio and many more. However, to view such files through programs without 3d support, users may be required to convert PNS files to a more common or convenient format.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pns files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pns. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
