Advice and answers from the Frame.io Team

After installing the Frame.io Adobe extension, go to:
Window > Extensions > Frame.io and the panel will snap into the top panel.

Upload Queued Comps

Now, to upload to Frame.io, first add to the render queue.

Adjust the render settings according to what you would like to send to Frame.io.

In Frame.io, select Upload > Upload Queued Comps and this will pull from your Render Queue.

Next, select if you want to render Based on Output Module, Whole Composition or the Work Area. You can also render to the location based on the Output Module or select a Custom Folder.

Auto Version automatically stacks this upload on top of the previous version.

Upload Folders

If you make folders in your project and move many files to this folder, you can upload the entire folder's contents to Frame.io.

Go back to the Frame.io Panel and select Upload > Upload Folder.

From here, select the folder you want to upload.

This uploads the folder directly to the project.

Upload Project File

If you want to share the After Effects project file between others through Frame.io, simply select Upload > Upload Project File.
If you have not yet saved the project file, this will prompt you to save it to your drive first.

Then the .aep will be a file on your Frame.io project.

Import single files by clicking the ... in the file and then select Import Files

Import multiple files by selecting with Shift or Cmd (Ctrl) and then right-mouse click and select Import Files.
