A Question About Encryption in VM Workstation 15

Ok i have a question:

Lets say i encrypt a machine in vm (settings-->options-->access control-->Encrypt...).

If i grab the vmdk file (the virtual disk) and i copy it to another physical pc without a vm workstation or other product of vmware inc, and i try to mount it with a software like OSFMount or any other solution, what will happen?

Can anyone read the data inside the vmdk file?
