The '''[[Imagine Object File]]''', a variety of Form [[TDDD]], is used for 3-D rendering data by the Impulse Imagine software for the Amiga and for x86 PCs. Data is stored in Amiga format, meaning that the multi-byte items are [[Endianness|big-endian]]. There is also an [[Imagine Texture File]] to hold textures to be applied to the objects.

[edit] Identification

Files begin with 'F' 'O' 'R' 'M' ?? ?? ?? ?? 'T' 'D' 'D' 'D'.

This does not distinguish it from the original TDDD format. There does not appear to be any simple way to do that, but you could look for IFF chunk names that are used only in the Imagine format (BBOX, SPC1, PRP1, ...), and that are used only in the original format (INFO, TPAR, EXTR, ...).
