    AE product template to create multiple product

    kennyg112

      I have recently created a product video template in AE for a client and now the client wants to use that template to create around 100 different product videos.  I am new to AE and this is a little over my head, so I thought I was ask you guys if you know a way to import different data points in from a file(or something) i.e. price, product image into the template to create all the different product videos without having to do this manually?

          Check the "Comps from Spreadsheet" script and similar stuff from AEScripts, but generally there is no 100% automated way of doing such stuff. Differently cut out images will require changes in placement, varying text length will need manual mangling and so on. If there's a hundred products every week and it gets long in the tooth, you should contact one of the scripters to create some custom stuff for you/ your client, otherwise 100 "simple" comps isn't really that much when you think about it. Even "simple" projects in my world rarely have less than 50...

            Mylenium,

             

             

            Thank you so much for your help! That is exactly what I am looking for. I agree this will not solve everything, but I am hoping this will help speed up the process as I get more clients in the future.
