File extension .VEC
The VEC file extension is used generally in DaVis, a flow visualisation software. This is a vector based format for storing graphic data, such as curves or images. It is mainly used by engineers to model flows and particles that are being studied.
The VEC graphics file includes a header followed by the vector information. The header contains information about the type of vector used, along with the properties of the vectors. It also has information about color palettes used and size of the image. The data stored in the vector file can be used by various DaVis applications.
A VEC graphic file can contain multiple sets of vectors with associated properties. These properties can include characteristics like intensity, color, angle, size and others. Each set of vectors has its own unique identifier which allows it to be easily identified and modified. Additionally, it may also contain compressed vector images which allow for efficient storage.
Other vector-based graphics file formats include SVG, EPS, EMF, AI, and CGM.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .VEC) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .VEC extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .VEC file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .VEC extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .VEC extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .VEC file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .VEC file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .VEC file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .VEC file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .VEC file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
