SMD is a 3D model format associated with software developed by Valve Corporation. A well-known name in the gaming industry, Valve is the creator of Half-Life, Counter Strike, Dota 2 and other highly popular video games. SMD files are developed via Source, a game engine owned by Valve, and contain a three-dimensional model compiled using a command-line utility called Studiomdl Data and a QC script.
SGI (Silicon Graphics Image) is a raster image format associated with Silicon Graphics workstations. It is a bitmap file that can store black-and-white, gray-scale and color images, and may also contain color maps and alpha channels. SGI files are sometimes referred to as RGBs and can either use no image compression or RLE compression. Alternative extensions for the SGI format are BW, RGB and RGBA.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert SMDs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .smd files you intend to convert into .sgi because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select SMDs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .sgi files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the SGI as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
