    Submit Batch of Data Set Variable Replacement externally?

    edgeicon Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I am working on automating a production pipeline process that should not require any man power for this part in the chain.

       

      I need to be able to output a lot of files via the data set process and i would like to be able to do so without the need for the artist to open up Photoshop manually.

       

      I figure it would be a javascript tool, but I havent touched photoshop API and would like a bit of guidance where to start.

       

      I assume javascript would, trigger an instance of photoshop to load, apply the needed data set values, then save the files where i need them to go. then close photoshop.

       

      Is this an easy process to script and do?

       

      Thanks for any feedback
