What is DDD file?

Files with the DDD extension are associated with the Adobe Distiller software, used for purpose of managing PDF files. DDD files are used by servers of the previously mentioned program for generating PDF documents “on the fly” – they are being send directly to the print server. It is possible due to content of DDD files – they include data required to browse, create, print and manage PDF files.

Operating of specific functions of Adobe Distiller is based on code and resources of DDD files. Besides all that, DDD files may also include metadata, such as version of Adobe Distiller, date, time marker, and other information regarding this program.

Advantages of DDD files

DDD files enable to create professional documents in relatively short period. Print files are generated quickly, because they are created from tag files, which are being sent to a printer so that finally they can be processed into documents ready for print.


It is not advised to open DDD files, to the fact they contain sensitive code, which may result in malfunctioning of the associated software in case of modifying it.

Because of the fact that currently there are no converters supporting the DDD format, it is impossible to convert the file into different formats.
