Hi, is there a plugin, script, workflow something that makes it easier to make quick versions of the same video?

Example, I have create this video for a sneaker company, and have to make 500 different versions where the endslate have different names of athletes. is there some way I can loading a txt file, and it will change the text-layer to a name, render it out and name it after the input name?

Do it in a video editing application, not AE. Sincde this is not something you can automate, it'll make life a lot easier.

In broadcasting, we call these things "tags". Think about a promo for a show that airs in two weeks -- you need to tell viewers to watch on the specific date and time, then the day of the week & time once the air date is less than a week out, then a "tomorrow" version, and then a "tonight" version.

You're doing tags, so use what we use -- a video editing application. You've just got more tags to do, that's all.

And if you have to re-design your AE animation to do it in an NLE, by all means do it.
