Import Document Information or XML into AE comp
on May 11, 2015 at 7:07:57 pm

Hello, on a monthly basis I produce a new product video for my company. The information they provide to me is in a text document with bullet points. I currently just cut and paste these bullets into an AE composition but I know there is a better, faster and more efficient way to do this. Is there any way to import the .txt document and have the information reflect in a comp?

Any other suggestions on how to speed up videos with text heavy information like this?

Thanks!

AE CompsFromSpreadsheet works for my needs.

Drive it around and see if it fits the bill.

See the "Is Text2Spreadsheet the right tool for me?" section of the "Description" tab on this page:
http://aescripts.com/text2spreadsheet/

It compares and contrasts a few very good scripts for doing this kind of work.
