What is tuxguitar-converter

tuxguitar-converter is batch file format converter. It allows you to convert number of files from various file formats (*.gpX, *.ptb, *.tef, *.tg) into destination file format, keeping the file names but changing the format (and extension of a file).

Converter simply tries to load every file and save/export it into destination file.

So supported input formats are files TuxGuitar can load and import, and destination format is every format TuxGuitar can save into or export. You can check for supported file formats. For some exporter plugins that have various exporting options, default options are used.
