What is a PIXIL file?

A PIXIL file is a pixel art project created by Pixilart, an online vector-drawing application used to create artwork with a pixelated appearance. It contains one or more drawing layers with various annotations and effects. PIXIL files also store drawing project settings, such as the title and description of the drawing, the canvas size, and the number of frames, and their length in time if the project is an animation.
