The BIP file format is associated with Character Studio. Character Studio is collection of tools used for creating characters and the data of characters is stored in BIP file format.
BIP file format only stores the skeletal armature of the character which is ready for animation. The first object created with Character Studio is the character itself and the data associated with that character including its geometry, armature and position is stored in BIP file format. The data stored in BIP file includes scale and size of skeleton, key frame data, footsteps, active gravity value and data including limb rotation.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .BIP file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .BIP file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .BIP file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
