Opening MP files

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

What is a MP file?

The .mp file extension is most commonly used for Maya Personal Learning Edition project files. Maya Personal Learning Edition is a 3D modeling application that is used for student purposes and other non-commercial use. The MP filese are similar to the MA project files that are created with the Maya software, but the MP project files are saved in a non-commercial format and feature a watermark that prevents the file from being used for commercial purposes.

The .mp file extension is also used for MPEG compressed movie files, Microsoft Multiplan files, MPwin project files and MetaPost macro files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
