What is an OTP file?
An OTP file is a presentation template created by Impress, a presentation program included with Apache OpenOffice (formerly known as OpenOffice.org). It contains a presentation, which includes a master slide as well as a content slide with text, images, shapes, multimedia content, transition effects, and other slide elements. Impress users create OTP files to duplicate .ODP presentations with similar appearance and content.
OpenOffice is a free office suite alternative to Microsoft Office and Impress is similar to PowerPoint. Additionally, OTP files are similar to .POT or .POTX templates created by PowerPoint but are based on the OASIS OpenDocument standard, which uses an XML format to save presentations. Various presentation applications may create OTP files, although, Impress creates most OTP files.
You will likely only encounter an OTP file if you use the Impress application or if another OpenOffice user shares a presentation template with you. Examples of templates include family photo slide shows, school reports, and financial summaries.
NOTE: The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) maintains the OpenDocument standard.
