what is a .afe file?

An Avid file exchange file is also known as an AFE file, and these files are appended with the .afe extension. Data stored in an .afe file consists of details that the associated application would need to reference whenever the user accesses a set of features corresponding to that AFE file. The nature of the data stored in these AFE files can be used to classify these files as data files, or files used by an associated application as reference data. An AFE file is integrated with XML-based specifications since its content includes metadata details used for file transmissions of digital media between applications developed by Avid Technology. Users of Microsoft Windows-based systems can install the Avid Xpress software as well as the Avid Media Composer software to implement support for these AFE files. Mac users on the other hand can install versions of these applications into their systems. These applications are used for multimedia creation and editing, and these applications are ensured of efficient data exportation and importation because of these AFE files, since the data stored in files with the .afe extension are only referenced by these applications and not loaded unto the application to conserve OS memory and RAM resources.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .afe files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .afe. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
