Uploading Files to your Project

Upload videos, still images or audio, by dragging them from a folder anywhere onto the project 👏

Or, select New > File upload on the top right of your project.

Upload folders from your computer and Frame.io will retain the folder structure automatically. 🙌

No need to compress your files beforehand. You can upload full-res and pro-res files. Frame.io uses an accelerated file uploader which allows for speeds up to 5 times faster than the top file sharing services 🎉

There is a 500GB upload cap for all video files. All other asset types will have a 5TB upload cap.

Once the upload is complete, hover scrubs are instantly created for videos and thumbnails for your still images. Non-media file types will be identified with a file icon. 

Frame.io encodes the files into HTML5 videos so they can play seamlessly on the web while still storing the original file available for download.
