You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .xaf. Files with the file extension .xaf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .xaf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .xaf file?

The .xaf file extension is commonly used by three applications. One is the 3ds Max application, a program that is used to create models and animations usually used in video games, movies, etc. The .xaf files used by this application contain information that allows the software to capture movements and affix these movements to images. This file extension is also used by Cal3D as animation files. This program is used to animate characters while the .xaf files are used to make the skeleton models move. These files contribute a lot to making human motions realistic. Files with the .xaf extension are also used by Affirm Transcript Editor. It is a program that creates deposition transcripts used in legal proceedings. The files used by this application contain information in rich text usually gathered in courtrooms. These files are every helpful for lawyers when it comes to storing digital evidence that may be used for the case they are handling. In other words, these file help make lawyers’ jobs easier.

how to open a .xaf file?

It features an animation that helps make believable, life-like characters. It has skit modifier and CAT muscle, 3ds Max bones inverse kinematics solvers and rigging tools that are customizable. By using its high performance toolsets, users can create dynamics effects and simulation. Through 3D rendering, users can achieve optimum image quality that gives predictable, photorealistic results. The Data transfer and Pipeline Integration enables users to import data from several sources, and also transfer 3ds Max and 3dsMax design data to users, locations, file iterations and software applications.

The Cal3d2ogre is an exporter that converts geometry, skeletons, animations and materials from binary and XML CAL3D files. Files such as cmf, csf, caf, crf, xmf, xsf, xaf, xrf, Ogre3D mesh, skeleton and material file formats without the need to install another tool. It can perform parses on CAL#D config files, it outputs Binary and XML files, and it gives the option to keep +Z axis as up. Cal3d2ogre keeps UV mapping, converts normals and LODs, and can perform manual scaling on the resulting mesh. It also features a selectable triangle winding for output. The software is compiled on the Windows platform and further development is made for it to be a cross-platform and be available for Mac and Linux. There are options for mesh processing in Cal3d2ogre, some includes producing a binary output instead of XML files, this process involves creating an XML mesh as the output for editing. In this option, users may opt to get a binary file output. The scale factor is also a part of the mesh process. This method though, is limited because users cannot provide different scaling for each. Many other options are available in the software, not only for mesh processing but for other methods as well.


The Web Depo Inc. has developed Affirm Transcript Editor software also known as XAF file or .xaf file which stores rich text and verbal testimony of a witness recorded in a courtroom. It is used in creating deposition transcripts and stores digital evidences. This application used often by lawyers to create deposition transcripts during their legal proceedings. It also enables lawyers in storing digital evidences during litigation. Windows operating system can open .xaf files. To allow other lawyers to participate in the instantaneous deposition testimony (which also incorporates the videos and testimonials encoded to a steno machine by the stenographer) at the same time, the company has developed basic format of the Web Depositions to the lawyer's home office or their Web server. Though lawyers are not physically present in the Testimony room, they can still even participate fully in a Legal Deposition through the developer's Virtual deposition software.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xaf 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, .xaf. 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.
