How To Convert VoTT JSON to OpenAI CLIP Classification

If your labeling tool exported annotations in the


format, but you’re trying to use a

model that needs


annotations, we’ve got you covered. You can convert data between these formats for free in 3 clicks with Roboflow.

Step 1: Create a free Roboflow public workspace

Roboflow is the universal conversion tool for computer vision annotation formats. The Public plan is the best way for those exploring personal projects, class assignments, and other experiments to try Roboflow. To convert your dataset, start by creating a free workspace on the Public plan.

Step 2: Upload your data into Roboflow

Once your account has been created, click Create New Project.

Upload your data to Roboflow by dragging and dropping your
images and annotations into the upload space.

To create annotations in VoTT JSON format and ensure you are following all of the best practices, follow our VoTT tutorial.

Step 3: Generate Dataset Version

Next, click "Generate New Version" to generate a new version of your dataset:

You can then apply any preprocessing or augmentation steps to your dataset:

Step 4: Export Dataset Version

After generating, you will be prompted to Export your dataset. You can choose to receive your dataset as a .zip file or a curl download link. Choose

OpenAI CLIP Classification

when asked in what format you want to export your data. You will see a dropdown with various options like this:

Congratulations, you have successfully converted your dataset from


format to

OpenAI CLIP Classification



Want to dive deeper into converting annotation formats with Roboflow? In the tutorial below, we explore how to convert your data in the Roboflow dashboard. We also discuss rejecting annotations
and train-test-validation splits.

Next Steps

Ready to use your new


dataset? Great!

Once you've got your object detection or classification dataset into our CLIP format, you'll want to use the "Get Link" option to grab your code snippet and use it with our CLIP colab notebook as described in our OpenAI CLIP tutorial.

Here are some compatible models:
