Frame.io supports Microsoft Office project files for Powerpoint Powerpoint (pptx, ppt), Word (docx, doc), and Excel (xlsx, xls) as supported asset types, including thumbnail and proxy representations of those assets for Frame review and approval collaboration workflows.

When you upload an MS Office project file to Frame.io, you will have all the same asset abilities at your disposal, including asset viewing (with proxies), all commenting abilities, downloads, sharing, and version stacking.

Note: Some enterprise security features (WMID, Forensic Watermark, DRM) cannot be applied to MS Office files.
