What is a .TNZ file?

A .TNZ file is a type of file that is used to save scenes in a program called Dwango OpenToonz. OpenToonz is a free program that people use to create 2D animations, like cartoons. When you make a scene in OpenToonz, all the details about what the scene looks like and what's in it are saved in a .TNZ file. However, it's important to know that the .TNZ file doesn't actually hold any pictures or videos itself. Instead, it has instructions in a format called XML that tell the program how to put the scene together using the images and other materials you've created or imported.

If you want to open a .TNZ file, you have a few options. You can use: 1. **Dwango OpenToonz**: This is the main program that .TNZ files are made for. If you have OpenToonz installed on your computer, you can open the .TNZ file to see the animation scene and work on it.

2. **Vim or Any Text Editor**: Because the information inside a .TNZ file is written in XML, which is a type of text, you can use a basic text editor like Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on Mac, or more advanced ones like Vim to open and look at the file. However, using a text editor, you'll only see the code and instructions, not the actual animation. This might be useful if you know how to read XML and want to make a quick edit without opening OpenToonz.

Remember, if you're planning to work on the animation itself, using Dwango OpenToonz is the best choice. Text editors are more for seeing or tweaking the code behind the scene.
