    Lightbulb Xara 3D - Dont have my source .X3D file but do have exported Gif, anyway to import?

    I'm in sort of a bind - I have an older copy of Xara 3D Ver 4.0. Currently on a trip and forgot my original source .X3D file. I have an exported animated GIF from the work that I need, but no .X3D or .WMF, or .EMF and it understandably seems that Xara 3D wont import or open GIF files. I've even gone online (Free Convertors) and converted my animated GIF to either .WMF, or .EMF and Xara 3D won't import them (error is: "Can not import xxx.wmf or emf. This file contains bitmap data that is ignored. It does not contain any outlines)."

    I've already tried redoing from scratch but even spending sometime the new attempts don't come close to original.

    Welcome to Talk Graphics rdingley.

    No, there's no way of doing this without the original Xara 3D file.

    you could try a trial version of the latest xara 3D program - been a few years since I used it, but I think the trial is still unrestricted in features...

    however it depends what you want to do - I don't think you can modify the vector element from within X3D, you would need your original vector file and program [xara designer?] for that

    Hi,

    Were you able to recreate this?

    It is quite easy. There is an animation model with 3D Maker, Swing2aWaveH.x3d that you look for under the animation picker. If you don't have that, then see the image below for the animation parameters. I didn't check the font and size, and you will have to adjust the colour and slow down the animation a bit.

    Here is the link to the X3D file on DropBox:
