What is an .MVF file?

.MVF is AutoFlix stop frame data

The mvf file extension is associated with AutoFix, a part of AutoCAD CAD/CAM software for DOS, Windows and Mac OS developed by Autodesk, which allows users to create animations.

The mvf file stores stop frame. AutoFlix was discontinued.

This mvf file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.


How to open:

How to convert:

AutoCAD may be able to export *.mvf files to other formats.
