Opening IFF files

Did your computer fail to open an IFF file? We explain what IFF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your IFF files.

What is an IFF file?

IFF is an acronym for Interchange File Format. Files that contain the .iff file extension are used to exchange documents across multiple computer platforms, allowing a user running on one platform to share files with a user running on an entirely different computer platform.

The universal IFF file format was created by Electronic Arts. Files that contain the .iff file suffix may contain text, graphics and even audio data.

The Alias Wavefront software application also uses the .iff file extension. These IFF files contain image files that are created by the software.

The TextCraft software program also uses the .iff file suffix. The IFF files that are saved within this software application contain document files that have been created with the TextCraft program.
