Automate images into particular comps
on Jul 12, 2016 at 2:01:50 pm

Hi All,
I have created a video using images for advertising a particular car (front, back, sides, interior etc....)

I now need to turn this into a template so I can just drop in the 9 images into a folder and cant figure out how to get them into the right comps. The image files are numbered "image (1)", "image (2)"..... "image (9). I believe you can use placeholders and rename them to correspond with the files to be inserted but scratching my head as to how.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Regards, Gareth

You can import them as an image sequence and use Time Remapping to freeze on any frame you would like. Then, all you have to do is replace that image sequence with the new one.

Many thanks Michael,

I'll give that a go. Would I then be able to direct the different images into different comps?

Regards

Yes.
You could put each image in its own precomp.

Just wanted to thank you for your help Michael. I think I was trying to over complicate it (y)
