What is an ODP file?

An ODP file is a presentation created by Impress, a presentation program included in the Apache OpenOffice suite. It contains a series of slides that may themselves contain text, images, media, and transition effects. ODP files are similar to .PPTX files.

Apache OpenOffice is a free, open-source alternative to Microsoft Office. To save money yet still produce Office-compatible documents, some students and professionals use OpenOffice in place of Microsoft Office.

Impress is OpenOffice's equivalent to Microsoft PowerPoint. It allows users to create slide shows that can be used as part of lectures, project proposals, and other presentations. Impress saves users' slides in ODP files, which are similar to PowerPoint's PPTX files.

ODP files are formatted using the OASIS XML-based OpenDocument standard. This standard is used by OpenOffice, LibreOffice, and other variants, all of which save presentations as ODP files.

NOTE: Apache OpenOffice was formerly known as OpenOffice.org.

How do I open an ODP file?

You can open an ODP file with various presentation programs, including OpenOffice Impress (cross-platform), Microsoft PowerPoint (cross-platform), LibreOffice (cross-platform), and Google Slides (Web, iOS, Android, Chrome OS).

In all of those programs, you can also convert your ODP file to a PPTX file. Note that you may lose some formatting when you open an ODP file in a program other than OpenOffice or LibreOffice or convert an ODP file to another presentation format.

What is an ODP file?

An ODP file is an organ definition project file created by Organ Builder Portable, a virtual pipe organ creation program used alongside GrandOrgue. It contains plain text data used to show and simulate an organ. Organ Builder Portable users can use ODP files to create GrandOrgue ORGAN files.

GrandOrgue is a free, cross-platform program that allows pipe organ enthusiasts to use a MIDI keyboard and their PC to simulate a pipe organ. Because different real-world organs have different physical and audial characteristics, GrandOrgue allows users to simulate many different types of organs. Each simulated organ is saved in an ORGAN file.

Organists who want to create their own GrandOrgue organs can do so using Organ Builder Portable. This Windows program, which was created by Vincent Forman, saves users' in-progress organ creation projects in ODP files. After a user has finished creating their organ, they can use their ODP file to export their organ in the ORGAN format, for use in GrandOrgue.

How do I open an ODP file?

You can open an ODP file in Organ Builder Portable (Windows). To do so, open Organ Builder Portable and then select File → Open project.... To export the organ contained within an ODP file as a GrandOrgue ORGAN file, select File → Export project for GrandOrgue....
