This is the original format used by Autodesk Animator.

You can find a complete description of the fli/flc format (both container and video codec) here http://www.compuphase.com/flic.htm.

Video Codec

  • FOURCC (unofficial): FLIC
  • Frame type: IP (conditional replenishment)
  • Company: Autodesk

The codec uses RGB colorspace: paletted RGB8, RGB15, RGB16, RGB24.
RGB8 is tightly coupled with the VGA mode 0x13.

Compression methods are RLE-based.


There are many variations of flic container, the most common are the original FLI from Autodesk Animator and the extended FLC from Autodesk Animator Pro.

Flic files are video-only.

The file format is chunk-based.
