What is an ANIM file?

3D animation file created by Maya, a professional 3D modeling application; saves references to objects and their animation properties; includes keyframes that specify anchor points of the animation; also includes rotations and the timeline.

More Information

ANIM files allow modelers to create smooth motions by defining a number of intermediate frames between keyframes that are rendered automatically by a graphics engine. For example, a human arm can move by specifying a starting keyframe at frame 0 and an ending keyframe at frame 20.
