I'm failing to understand how entering/changing data in Illustrator is somehow faster than doing exactly the same in AE.

I suppose that you'll say you have everything neatly positioned in a single illustrator artboard and you just change it there. Well, you can have that same comp within AE and avoid a second application altogether.

People who dig automation tend to feed data to AE through spreadsheets, with scripts, so to avoid the need to make a master composition that feed the ones you use to render. But changing that to a illustrator file makes little sense to me. Text becomes rasterized graphics. Photos becomes layers. You'll just be losing editability, text presets, file structure, and you would be gaining absolutely nothing.

Or just maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture...
