ANM File

Did your computer fail to open an ANM file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .ANM files.

What is an ANM file?

An .ANM file is a DeluxePaint Animation file. These ANM files contain animations or art created in Deluxe Paint. This software was developed for the Commodore Amiga home computer and was later released on other platforms like MS-DOS. This bitmap graphics editor was used to create Amiga games, animations, and demoscenes. Some artists also used deluxe to make music videos. This software became the standard for pixel graphics in video games in the years 1985 to 1995.

What else are .ANM files used for?

While DeluxePaint Animation is a popular type of ANM-file, we know of 3 different uses of the .ANM extension.

The ANM file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ANM opener may not be able to open all kinds of ANM files. In this case, look through all formats to make sure you find the best suited ANM viewer.

League Of Legends bones based Animation

These ANM files contain the bone-based animations used in League Of Legends, a popular MOBA video game. When you create a League Of Legends character, you need to ensure that the bones match the ones in the original game models so that the animations run smoothly when importing it back into the game.
