What are DRF files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a DRF file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a DRF file?
DRF files have multiple uses, and Discreet Render Format VIZ Render is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.
Discreet Render Format VIZ Render File
The .drf or the Discreet Render Format file extension is associated with VIZ, and 3D Max render files that contain digital 3D images and graphic scene data.
A DRF file consists of rendered images which are detailed and complex pieces of a specific structure from every side and corner, making up the source structure. DRF files contain several images that are pieces of one large picture or model. The Autodesk Architecture software is one of the primary software programs that can work with .drf files. It is usually bundled with the VIZ Render application. The program is used to create, open and edit the content of DRF files. There are versions of this application for Mac and Microsoft Windows-based systems.
3DS Max software can be used to open and view the content of these DRF files but is not designed to have features that can allow users to edit the files under the said file type. To compensate for the lack of add- ons, 3DS Max enables users to export the DRF files into MAX projects, which are saved in the MAX format that can be edited using the said software.
