Learn about the After Effects extension
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
Uploading a comp to Frame.io starts with adding the selected comp to Render Queue. Adjust the render settings in your Render Queue.
In the Frame.io panel, select Upload > Upload Queued Comps, and this will pull from your Render Queue.
Select the render option: 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.
NOTE: Your render will upload in the background, allowing you to continue working on your projects while it's rendering.
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. To upload this folder and its contents, select Upload > Upload Folder. When you select a folder, the subfolder structure and its contents will be uploaded to Frame.io directly to the project.
Upload Project File
If you want to share the After Effects project file with others through Frame.io, 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 files from Frame.io to After Effects
Import single files by clicking the three-dot 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.
