An STG file may also be a project file created by ScreenToGif, a program used to turn a screen, webcam, or sketchboard recording into a GIF or video. STG files are Zip-compressed. They store .PNG images of each of a project's included frames and a .JSON file that defines the project's metadata.

ScreenToGif is a screen, webcam, and sketchboard recording tool that allows you to edit your recordings and export them as .GIF, video (.MP4, .AVI, etc.), or image (.JPG, .PNG, etc.) files. You can then share the exported files with others, to let them view your recording.

Optionally, you can save a recording editing project as an STG file. This lets you continue to edit your recording, even after exporting it. For example, if you plan to edit your recording in response to feedback, you should save your project as an STG file, to make future editing easier.

How to save a ScreenToGif project as an STG file

To save a ScreenToGif project as an STG file:

  1. Select File → Save as.
  2. In the Save as sidebar, click the dropdown menu that appears beneath File type and preset.
  3. Select Project from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click the Save button.

How to open an STG file

You can open an STG file with ScreenToGif (Windows). To do so, select File → Load from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your STG file.

If you want to view the individual frames and .JSON file an STG file contains, you can rename the file's extension to .zip and open it as you would any .ZIP file.

Statistica Graph File

An STG file may also be a graph file created by TIBCO Statistica, a data analytics suite. It contains a collection of Statistica data that has been organized into one or more graphs. STG files can be opened in Statistica and converted to .BMP, .JPG, .PNG, .PDF. .GIF. .TIF, .EMF, and .WMF files.

More Information

TIBCO Statistica is an analytics suite that data analysts use to analyze data and create predictive models. As part of their data analysis, analysts can create graphs that allow them to visualize, connect, and draw conclusions from their data. These graphs are saved as STG files.

Statistica allows users to create and combine a wide variety of graphs, including line graphs, bar graphs, scatterplots, 3D graphs, pie charts, drawings, and maps. STG files may contain any combination of these types of graphs. STG files that contain more than one graph are sometimes referred to as complex compound graphs.

When a user saves a graph (or set of graphs) as an STG file, Statistica saves all the data needed to continue using and editing that graph within the file. That way, users can continue editing the graph even if they don't have access to the original files used to create it. If a Statistica user wants to share a graph with someone who does not have Statistica, they can export the graph as an image or PDF file. Statistica users also often export graphs for use in presentations.

How to open an STG file

You can open an STG file (TIBCO Statistica Graph) in TIBCO Statistica (Windows). After you do, the graph(s) your STG file contains will appear in a new Statistica window.
