I have been following this forum for a long time and always found answers to my questions - today, I've not been that lucky and I hope there is a solution to this!

I have to produce 200 different videos in After Effects. They are all nearly the same, except for one word, for example there is a text element in video 1 "Hello John, great to hear..." in video 2 "Hello Steve, great to..." and so on.

Is there a possibility to automate this? I would like to kind of finish the project with one placeholder-name, than have a txt, xml, csv whatever file, which contains the 200 names and tell After Effects "Take the first name of the list, insert it instead of the placeholder name, export the whole video, and when you're finished take the second name.." and so on...

I'm really curious about your answers.

Best regards,
