The omf file extension is related to a standard audio/video format based on the Open Media Framework Interchange (OMFI), a standardized interchange file format. It may be exported from digital video editing or audio workstation (DAW) software.

Because *.omf files use a standardized format to store audio and video data, they are commonly used to share projects between multiple applications.

An audio project saved in the OMF format can store multiple audio tracks, volume and pan information, and references to audio files. However, not all settings, such as insertion effects and channel routing options, can be saved in an omf file.
