CHALLENGE ! Text importing from file, creating multiple similar videos in VP13/14
on Mar 29, 2017 at 12:13:52 am

Hello.

I have a task from my client - big european telecomunication operator. He wants to produce custom-made videos for each of his clients from a certain group. The video should contain : some certain animation or stock photos or 3D animation (f. example a model of a smartphone), text - partly customizable and stock music. No voiceover. Videos should be 1 minute long and have 6-8 customized text elements. Videos should be customized in the following way (example of text displayed during video, the text in bold should be customized for every video):

Hello John Doe, Your are now using our offer XYZ. Your monthly payment is 100 USD, but you can now pay as little as 90 USD .....

So here is my idea of preparing the videos.

1. We create a "template" of a project in Sony Vegas. The template should consist of text areas, animation, some photos and music.

2. We have a text file. A spreadsheet or csv file or any type of file that will work with the script :). The file as following:

John Doe, XYZ, 100 USD, 90 USD .....

Joanne Doe, XYY, 200 USD, 180 USD....

Tom Miller, ZYX, 150 USD, 80 USD....

3. We import information from text file to vegas project template. Each time vegas should duplicate the template to a timeline to make it easier to export it afterwards.

4. We export each customized video from the timeline.

5. We do 60 000 of those videos (this is the target) and Vegas does not crash too often ☺



☺ And now, my point is: Who would like to help me with this project? I need a partner for longer cooperation. I need to convince the client that automating video editing is possible. ☺

For now I need a simplest, shortest, beta-version of the script - with at least one customizable text area. Just to see if it works with let's say 100 rows of 1-column data (not 60 000 with 6-8 colums which is the target ) and to show the client the very early prototype of the way we would make the project work. I and my partner would be responsible for doing the edit and animation besides the script.

If the client sees the prototype working we could make a business out of it. It could be an interesting venture! I am waiting for anyone who is interested in the topic.

Erm.... These requirements, if I didn't know any better, sound like the requirements of a recent very long thread I was involved in.
