File formats that you can import

Adobe Aero lets you import 2D, 3D, and archived file formats to use and create an AR experience.

2D image formats

  • Photoshop format (PSD / PSB)
  • PNG
  • SVG 

  • TIFF / TIF

  • GIF

audio formats

  • WAV
  • MP3

3D file formats

3D file formats that can be directly imported into Aero: 

  • GLB (GLTF binary format)

Inside an archive (.zip)

3D file formats listed below can be imported into Aero, as long as they are packaged in an archive (.zip) folder that contains the 3D model and supporting texture and animation files.

  • OBJ - with MDL or MTL materials
  • Collada (DAE)
  • 3DS

  • FBX (supported when files are prepared according to guidelines)
  • PNG Sequence (in numerical sequence)

File formats for sharing AR experiences

You can share your AR experience with others to collaborate or view your creation in the below formats:

  • .REAL  share with team members who want to edit your experiences in Aero.
  • .USDZ  send a static file that can be viewed without interactivity on another device on AR Quick Look. The USDZ export option is available in the desktop version of Aero.


  • Transparent 2D image content is supported in Aero. If your asset has an alpha channel or transparent layers, you will be able to see through the transparent sections inside Aero. 
  • A single asset includes several files inside an archive. When you import an archive, only the first 3D asset is supported in Aero.

What's next?

You now have all the information you need about the recommended sources for assets and supported file formats. You can start by importing assets from other Creative Cloud apps or third-party apps.
