.hdz File Extension

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

what is a .hdz file?

A compressed Poser hand pose file can be created using the Poser application. These compressed Poser hand pose files are classified as 3D image files and are stored in the HDZ format, which is implemented with compression specifications and encoding standards proprietary to Smith Micro, developer of the Poser program. This software was primarily developed to use these HDZ files in displaying the hand poses of animated characters created using the Poser application. This program is generally classified as a 3D character development and animation modeling application, and the content of these compressed HDZ files may include finger positions and hand gestures of animated characters developed using the Poser software. Particular HDZ files are associated to corresponding animated Poser characters. This means when a user views an animated character, the Poser application locates the HDZ file that correspond to the hand gestures and finger positions integrated into the animated character.

how to open a .hdz file?

Launch a .hdz 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 .hdz 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 .hdz files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hdz file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hdz file will open the correct application.

Then, the second step requires the user to select certain points within the animated characters and elements in order to pose them and implement different animated movement options that can be selected from the options offered by Smith Micro Poser 9. The third step is to finalize the user's digital image development and 3D animation projects by polishing certain visual elements of the animated scenes and images through the wide variety of lighting options and camera configuration settings provided by Smith Micro Poser 9.

a word of warning

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