Currently working on template using Dataclay to automatically make versioned comps from a spreadsheet. At the moment I have it making versioned comps and I want to put those versioned comps into a final timeline that as transitions and more effects. Now, I have not found a way to to do it automatically with Dataclay but I thought if I made comps of the same name in my final timeline I could have Dataclay make my versioned comps it would replace the comps of the same name and boom I would be done. But that is not the case as you can have multi comps of the same name in AE.
Is there a way to replace comps of the same name automatically when a new comp is made? I know I could just replace footage by hand but this needs to be automatic as we are making a lot of videos at one time. Any ideas?
