    AE CS5 External Text Expression

    JJ36

      Hi,

       

      I need to create a template AE project that will display many different peoples names every time I create a new file.

      After reading various posts it seemed a good idea to have these set in external .txt files and using Expressions to link this variable data to each new file.

      The problem seems to be that the references I've read seem to refer to CS3/CS4 and some of the language that AECS5 will now except appears to be different.

      Does anybody know a suitable script I can repeatable use in AECS5 to link over 100 comps to data from a single external .txt file ?

       

      Many thanks in advance,

       

      Jonathan
