    Submit Batch of Data Set Variable Replacement externally?




      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
