I am trying to figure out how to take text from a web form and place it inside an after effects project. The purpose is to create custom "thank you" videos with the persons name in the animation. I'd like it to accept the text, place it in a text field, and render the file. I know this would take additional scripting approach, like PHP from the form, but I'm curious how After Effects opens the door to accepting and running the variable.
I've been searching the adobe scripting option, but can't find anything close.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
There is no simple function for this. You have to open a socket connection to your server with the script and fetch the content with an SQL query inside the script.
