What is an .FLIC file?

.FLIC is FLIC Animation

A FLIC file is a movie or animation created by Autodesk animation software, such as Animator Pro. It contains multiple frames with each frame consisting of an image and other data such as palettes and labels. FLIC files are similar to .FLI files but not as popular.

The FLIC format features lossless compression for reducing the animation file size while maintaining the original quality. The FLIC format has been replaced by a similar format that uses the .FLC extension. FLIC players can usually play both FLI and FLC files.
