Is there any Script or Expression to pull data from a spreadsheet?
on Apr 9, 2012 at 7:02:51 pm

Hey all,
I'm trying to create 200+ videos that only differ by one or two text layers and I'd like to know if there's a script or expression that I can use to pull text from a spreadsheet, input into a text layer in after effects, and then render it out with an incremented number after the file name.
I can do it manually but it would just save me a bunch of time. Any ideas or thoughts?
Much appreciated!

Hey, Walter....

I just learned you went to SU. Wouldn't you know, I grew up in Liverpool.

Heid's.... mmmmmm! Dinosaur BBQ, too.

And I'll bet it didn't get past you that another Walter by the name of Biscardi also put in four years at Newhouse.

[Dave LaRonde] "I just learned you went to SU. Wouldn't you know, I grew up in Liverpool. "

Cool. I've got some family in Liverpool and some friends in the Syracuse area, but I haven't been up there in some time.


[Dave LaRonde] "Heid's.... mmmmmm! Dinosaur BBQ, too."

Well, now I'm hungry...

The coincidences don't end there. Walter B.'s hometown borders mine.

Check this tutorial by Harry Frank also, it might be a little easier to implement if you're only changing one or two text objects.
