  • fbx review update
    sukru boyraz | January 10, 2024 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Fbx review should now have PBR support  Hdri environment support and an object listing window.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

  • Lacking features
    Rodolphe Vaillant | August 09, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    My use case was to simply check several version of a rig without having to open maya which is slow. This viewer does not show skeleton, or skin weights nor does it has a outliner view of the scene (e.g. showing the hierarchy of bones). So this does not allow me to distinguish various rigs. For a viewer it feels quite incomplete and should show more informations present in the scene IMHO, at the very list textual description would be welcomed.

    Anoter weird thing is that smooth shading, which I expect to be implemented as a Gouraud Shading, is actually implemented as a mesh subdivision (which breaks it by creating gaps around disconnected areas). Subdivision should not be presented as a rendering option IMO, and gouraud shading should be properly implement via shaders.

  • Just a good viewer for simple models, not more
    Steffen Roemer | November 30, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've been using it on Windows where it works seamlessly for reasonably small models. Reading larger files is super slow but works, at least. Tuning the options in such cases is hardly possible, and also unclear because not documented it seems, not even popup bubbles. Also missing basic help about keyboard shortcuts etc. Not sure if we will ever get higher quality rendering on modern GPUs like lighting with an HDR image.

  • must have

    this tool is 1000 times much better than 3d viewer internal software in win 10

    ПОПОВНА ПОПА | June 09, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It does open fbx models however it lacks an option to change blend modes like in noesis and I think it need more features because my assets aren't shown by this programm correctly.

  • Unable to convert FBX to DAE(Collada)
    Shree Nandan | March 15, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    FBX review tool is good to view models. I need to convert FBX to DAE Collada format. But it doesn't work. Also, for DAE there are no options to choose from export. Any idea how to export to DAE from AutoDesk FBX review?

    Jcr2255 Jcr2255 | November 29, 2021

    you should be able to convert using Blender

  • Unlit texture
    Nefily Nefily | April 06, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I'd really like a self illuminated / max ambient mode for the texture to show no lighting or shading data on model just texture.

  • I wouldn't call it 2013.3 Converter's Successor
    Christopher Campbell | August 26, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)


    1. Other than an app I use called Open 3 Model (Which allows you to see Bones & Heirarchy, but the App no longer works as of today), this is a good alternative for quickly Viewing 3D Models
    2. The Lighting & Background Color is better than in 2013.3 Converter


    1. You still can't apply Textures if they are in the same folder (Apparently Models need to have Embed Media Enable on Export)
    2. There is no way to convert Bulk/Single Mesh between different Formats like the 2013.3 convertor

    So this is really a Reviewer and nothing like the Converter which can also Review & Bulk Convert...then again that Converter did ruin the Normals or Texture

  • Very basic app

    Best software, make my work simple and fast in order to open, view and analyze the FBX before using it in my project. 100% RECOMMEND TO OTHERS

  • Game Engine light
    Subdiakon Gerhard Eichhorn | January 30, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    FBX Review is a very cool application. It could even be a light "game engine" if it would be possible to package this app as redistributable and to remote it. It should be able to represent a background (e.g. HDR 360), to add and remove a single actor to the scene, to play remotely a motion on the actor, to send remotely the user inputs, to change the coordinates, size and angle of the actor. The best would be if an additional scene could hiddenly be prepared. (So that different scenes could be represented and walked through).

    Morphs and Morph animation is not displayed? I made a simple FBX to test if this supported basic morphs and it does not. :/

    When will it be supported on Revit 2018 please?

  • Doesn't show animated bones within animation
    Rob Acton | September 06, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Would be perfect for our asset review workflow but unfortunately doesn't include the bones which have been animated inside 3ds max.

  • Good, but lacks power...
    Jack R. Garcia | August 16, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    We work mainly in Site Design using InfraWorks. Being that you can only export FBX models out of AIW, it seems like a great tool. However, the performance of navigating the AIW export its disappointing. Wish there was ways to adjust the quality or geometry fidelity like anti-aliasing. The options under settings are geared more towards the animation products.

  • Drag-n-drop not working

    drag and drop worked in version 1.3.1, but not anymore Please fix, alternatively, post a links to previous versions.

  • Failed on first use... Eventually got it to work.
    Dan Houck | April 17, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just like the Windows App, this could not even open up Unity Chan FBX (only the disembodied head mesh appears). However, once I regenerated the UnityChan rig (with Adobe's Mixamo) it worked. A bad SDK version? Anyway, this app should have (1) better error handling to display to the user that something is amiss, and (2) a quick-help to assist new users with navigation - a UI is only 'obvious' to those that already know how to use it ;)

  • Excellent!

  • bad never worked for me..
    Nami Wind | March 17, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Using windows 10, never been able to use this app, crashes every time when trying to load a fbx. I have tried this software in late 2016 and twice in 2017. I realy would love some sort of fix pls..

  • Not bad, but..
    Stewart Cameron | March 14, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Please put the FBX title into the window title bar, and grow the drop-down box containing the take name as the window is resized - they're all too truncated to read! Would also love to see skeleton joint names and coordinates on mouse-over.

  • Crash on all tested files
    Wojciech Zaluski | March 08, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    On Win7 can't open even simple box exported to fbx , 3ds , obj from 3ds max 2017. Older fbx files also cause crash

  • Leaving much to be desired

    FBX Review 1.4.1 contains a bug which had previously been fixed. Some models are rendered with a "bulgy" look. Here's one:

  • WOW!!!
    Italo Bernabei | January 27, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Amazing stuff!! Congrats guys!!! =)

  • sigh, we ALWAYS set file types to FBX reviewer... but since this v1.4 MotionBuilder opens instead of FBXReviewer. v1.2.3 did NOT have this v1.2.3 FBXReviewer ACTUALLY opened FBXReviewer. Thx
    | September 28, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    we were working, and thought to check for update to V1.2.3.. and found 64Bit v1.4. However, now the system refuses to allow FBX files to be opened into the FBXReviewer tool as MotionBuilder opens instead. **Why would MotionBuilder open when FBXReview is set to open the format ??** - Please correct this and release v1.41

  • *.ma Viewer?
    Roy Summers | January 24, 2016

    Maya has been around for such a LONG time and I've seen and used many software's to view so many file formats. How is it that Autodesk hasn't produced a VIEWER for *.MA files? Autodesk would please so many users out there and make life that little more pleasing. Cheers

  • Shader/Texture
    GuRu Bhat | December 20, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have been trying to play an animation in fbx review, but have some issue with this. I have keyed the material in maya and then exported as fbx and opened it in fbx review. it plays animations perfectly but my keyed material/shader is missing, it becomes black. I tried with texture also, but same problem. my question is why textures are not visible when you fbx in fbx review and some of the animations are also not playing. I exported fbx from Maya LT.

  • very efficient
    Mina Maxwell | June 12, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    very effective tool for viewing 3d models if you don`t have the time to open your main 3d app

  • Good

    Very fast

  • Fast yet simple
    Ryan Metcalf | May 13, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    One of the best things about this tool is that it is very quick compared to the software Autodesk released in the past. FBX converter was the next best thing - it looks like this is what we'll be using going forward! Hopefully they deploy this with Max, Maya, MotionBuilder and Mudbox going forward. There's a substantially lacking feature though. If you're an animator, particularly for games, and only want to export the skeletal animation - you cannot preview that alone. Only if there is a skinned mesh in the scene will FBX review show you the skeleton drawn over the mesh. I don't understand why the skeleton cannot be displayed if that's all there is in the scene. I tried exporting a hierarchy, yet I was left with an empty FBX reviewer. The timeline was appropriate in length, though.

  • very impressive and helpful tool
    Haseeb Ahmed | October 26, 2013 Verified Download (What's this?)

    its perfect. my only suggestion for improvement is if you can give preferences on shortcut keys, this will help. simple example is showing skeleton on off etc..
