I'm designing a photo slideshow in AE and while I'm awaiting the final images, I'm creating a comp using precomposed placeholders.
I've named the placeholders 'Image_01', 'Image_02' etc. So, if I name the image files to match, can I tell AE to relink all placeholders to the file of the same name? I'm going to have quite a lot of images so this would be such a time saver compared to relinking each one individually!
Simply create a dummy image set externally and use that, then swap it out. AE doesn't care what the content is, it only looks for a file path.
Ah of course!! Seems so obvious now - thank you!
