Can AE use data merge like PS and InD?
by Ted Bragg 4 years ago
I've been making lower thirds and other graphics via data merge in PS -- it's a huge timesaver but I've never had time to really delve into AE. I don't even think I have it on any of our workstations

Yes, it definitely can. You can convert your layers into dynamic elements. I would be remiss not to mention Templater from Dataclay. Check out our site when you have some time to learn about all the l

Hi Anna, Should have answered this much sooner, but you can check out Templater from Dataclay. It essentially makes footage, text, and solid layers into dynamic elements. It does have a feature where

Hi Engin, Glad to hear you are using Templater! Unfortunately, it currently does not "officially" support the renaming of comps. You can use the "Make Comps" feature to create new, unique, comps based

In Boris Continuum for AfterEffects, can I use scripting (jsx) or expressions to set text source for the 3D text filters?
by Arie Stavchansky 9 years ago
I'm interested to know if either expressions or scripting can set the source text parameter for the 3D Text plugins in the Boris Continuum package for AfterEffects. Any ideas Thanks! Arie Stavchansky
Re: In Boris Continuum for AfterEffects, can I use scripting (jsx) or expressions to set text source for the 3D text filters?
by peter mcauley 9 years ago
As far as I am aware, these filters require direct manual keyboard text input via the text generator window and cannot be scripted or automated. Good idea though - I'll add it to the feature request l

Re: Linking source text in text layers to an external .txt file
by Arie Stavchansky 10 years ago
Dan, Yes, the -m flag would work if only it didn't take so much time and memory resources to launch AE. The reason AE takes so long for it load on my render station is that I have a great many effects
Possible to precompose maintaining layer size?

Hi There, I'm curious if anybody out there knows if it's possible to precomp any given layer so that the dimensions of the newly created composition match that of the extents of the layer rather than
Re: Possible to precompose maintaining layer size?
by Arie Stavchansky 11 years ago
Thanks for the link. Just submitted the feature request. I do think it would be a useful option for a user, even if layers that don't have any spatial data are included in the precomp. Arie Stavchansk

Basically, I have one comp. open in a project but I want access to that comp. in a different project. How do I do this Thanks...
Re: Import composition from one project to another?
by Arie Stavchansky 12 years ago
In the new project, import the older project that has the comp you want. After importing, you'll see a folder in your project window that you can drill into to get to the comp you want. In short, Afte
