Have you encountered a problem with a FMOD file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a FMOD file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your FMOD file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


With the file extension FMOD presets of the flattening module of the vector graphics software Illustrator are marked. With the so-called process of transparency reduction, the layers (layers) and transparencies of a document are processed according to given rules into a single image. This process is mainly used for the graphical preview before printing or output in digital form.

Among other things, these preferences files store quality settings and information about which areas of the document should be flattened. In addition, you can specify, for example, whether text objects should be converted into contours.

The transparency reduction specification dialog can be reached via the 'Edit' menu. New specifications can be created, saved and loaded here.

Transparency reduction presets are also used by Adobe InDesign and Acrobat, with each program storing certain options in those files that are not supported by the other programs.

Also note that the newer versions of the Adobe Transparency Reduction prescription file programs no longer use suffixes.

How to open a FMOD file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the FMOD file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a FMOD file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support FMOD files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a FMOD file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all FMOD files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with FMOD there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the FMOD file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the FMOD file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
