my current job implies rendering certain slideshows in after, over and over again; the only thing that's changing, are photos and intro text.
So, I'd like to write some script, where it'll open the project, replaces current photos with new ones (there are around 5 photos named 001.jpg, 002.jpg etc.), replacing intro text and rendering it in desired format.
Is there any way this can be achieved via scripts and if so, where should I look for answers?
but the problem is, I'll be having hundreds of user-uploaded pictures (which will be named 001.jpg, 002.jpg etc and sorted in separate folders for each user automatically) and I'll be needing some sort of script, which will tell AE to replace placeholders with those images and run render for all those separate folders.
For example, I'll have 10 folders named 001, 002, 003 etc with 5 jpg-s in each, named 001.jpg, 002.jpg, 003.jpg etc., and I'll need 10 video outputs with those different packs of pictures.
