Possible to automate AE to update website data? (weather forecast)
on Apr 7, 2010 at 2:49:00 am

I have an animation of weather forecast, with one background and 20 cities (20 layers).
I d´like to know if it could be possible to automate the proccess of selecting the right animated file (sun, rain, cloud, etc) based on the website's data, as well as the high and low temperature for each city.

This would not only save a lot of time every day and could prevent any typing mistake.

I have Apple Motion as well. Could it be possible to do it in Motion?

Thanks for any help!

The meteorologists at my TV station have the most up-to-date weather graphics system currently on the market. If anybody needs the functionality you seek, it would be them, and you would think such a thing would be a no-brainer.

Yet they still have to do it by hand each and every day. Good luck in your search, and if you find anything that does the trick, write back!
