Good morning,

i'd like to create weather clips every 4 hours

I'd like to change automatically icons and temperatures with XML or other data. Do you know if it's possible ?

Regards
Pierre

I know there is a script (aescripts.com) that can enable AE touse excel data:

AND
a XML to EXCEL conversion tool (there are other options as well)

Maybe you can make use of these combined?

You can also build an automation pipeline around After Effects XML project files [link].

[peter brelan] "what do you mean by a pipeline around after effects?"

I just meant that you could build a repeatable process around this automation.

Pipeline: a set of data processing elements connected in series, where the output of one element is the input of the next one. (Wikipedia [link])
