What is an .FLI file?

.FLI is FLIC Animation

Movie or animation created by Autodesk animation software, such as Animator Pro; uses lossless compression, which reduces the file size, but maintains the original quality.

The FLI format has been replaced by a similar format that uses the .FLC extension. FLIC players can usually play both FLI and FLC files.
