What is a CAL file?

Cal file extension has CryENGINE Character Animation List file type, developed by Crytek, which is associated with the "3d image files" category.

CryENGINE SDK is a program suite for developing 3D video games. Files created by it use the .CAL extension. They contain a full list of animation asset files (.CAF) needed to animate characters in-game. With the release of CryENGINE 3.3 .CAL files were combined with .IK files and .SETUP files as well into the new .CHRPARAMS format in order to simplify the configuration for character animation. This means that CAL files are no longer in use. 

To learn how you can open the given file, read the information below.
