.cfa File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Audio File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cfa. Files with the file extension .cfa can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cfa files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cfa file?

The CFA file extension is a data format known as Adobe Conformed Audio File. CFA files were developed by Adobe Systems. These are stored audio files that contain audio data that has been conformed to a proprietary Adobe format. They are used for improving the software's performance when processing audio data and when generating audio waveform previews. They may occupy large space in the computer since they are large files. They can be turned off using the caching option within Adobe applications preferences settings under the Media tab. In effect this would delay the processing time for audio previews. They are actually created by Adobe Media Encoder, a standalone software component that is included with Adobe programs. These files are saved in Scratch Disk location for Audio Previews in the Project Settings dialog box. Files in CFA format can be opened with Adobe Soundbooth, Adobe After Effects CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and Adobe Encore CS6 in Mac Os and Microsoft Windows based systems.

how to open a .cfa file?

Launch a .cfa file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cfa file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cfa files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cfa file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cfa file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cfa 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, .cfa. 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.
