Autodesk FBX Reader

Licensing options for this format begin with FME Professional Edition.


The Autodesk FBX Reader enables FME to read mesh geometries from Autodesk's FBX (Filmbox) format.

FBX® data exchange technology is supported by a number of third-party 3D modelling applications.

The reader is compatible with FBX file format versions 7.0-7.5, 6.1, and 6.0.

Note: The reader does not currently support animation. If an FBX file contains animation, geometries will be produced in the positions they have at the end of the animation (so the scene will be handled at "time=infinity").
