The RMD format is Atlus' model format for the Shin Megami Tensei games. Currently, the format is not very well documented. [[Persona 3 and 4|However, there are a few editors/viewers for the format.]]
Using an RMD viewer, it is possible to open and inspect the models packaged in .cvm files within Persona 3 or Persona 4's iso. There is very little knowledge about these filetypes documented online, so the purpose of most of the files is up for speculation.

This directory appears to contain playable overworld models of the protagonist.
 
They exclude models used in battle or in dungeon exploration.
 
There are models of other party members in here as well, presumably serving the same purpose.

The models in this directory can be swapped with other .rmd models (including other games) as long as they do not have a larger filesize, which results in corruption of the btl.cvm.
 
However, swapping models that are presumably used for different purposes (found in other directories or games) leads to improper use of animation.

The RMD format is Atlus' model format for the Shin Megami Tensei games. Currently, the format is not very well documented. However, there are a few editors/viewers for the format.

RMD files are little endian.
