File Extension LAY Description:

There are three different applications that utilize the LAY file extension, and their utilization of this file extension is all the same, and that is to define every layout file they have.

The LAY file extension defines the arrangement of objects or elements in a certain application. This is called the layout of the application. And in order to maintain the correct arrangement of the various elements in an application, the LAY file extension should be present. With this file, there will be no problem regarding the disarrangement of elements, despite the different platforms or systems. One of the applications that depend on the LAY file extension to maintain its structure is the MasterCook software.

The application MasterCook is specially created for users who love the culinary arts, or the art of cooking. This can be considered as a digital cookbook, where users can find a lot of recipes; from the traditional favorites, to the new ones. Since MasterCook is a new age kind of cookbook, it features more advanced capabilities for the users. One of which is the accurate information about nutrients one can get from ones food. Users are also allowed to make their own recipes and store them in the application's database. The LAY file extension is needed by this application to ensure order in all of its features and arrangements.

Moreover, the LAY file extension is also helpful for the Lightscape software. This is different from MasterCook, since this software is made to create high quality graphic files by using the properties of light. Through this special feature, the graphic files created with Lightscape look more natural than other 3D graphic design softwares. The LAY file extension works for this application whenever it uses its layer state. With this file extension users are allowed to create more advanced graphic files with the Lightscape.

Aside from the two discussed applications, the LAY file extension can also be found as the layout file for the Applause Word Chart.
