What is an SPA file?

3D model effects file used by MikuMikuDance, a dance and rhythm synchronization game; saved as a .BMP image but uses the ".spa" extension instead; used for adding a shiny look to 3D model features such as hair or clothes.

More Information

SPA files may also incorporate transparency (e.g., .PNG or .TGA files), but they are most commonly created from non-transparent bitmap images.

NOTE: You can create a SPA file by drawing a Bitmap image (".bmp" file) with any graphics editor and renaming the extension to ".spa."
