    Replace footage without opening After Effects?

    Zhiqiang_Li Level 1

      Hey guys,

       

      Is there a way to replace the footage or change the text layers in an After Effects project without opening After Effects?

       

      Currently I'm using a automatically generated xml file to define the footage path and use a startup script to read the path from the xml file and replace the footage and text layers when After Effects started by command line.

       

      But I don't want to open After Effects to change the footage.

       

      So, is there a way to do it?

       

      Thanks
