Hello Everyone,

Working on a project where I need to effect in 1000 peoples names over a 10-15 minute video. I'm looking for an AE text plugin that can read names from a text file and bring them on in dynamic ways one after the other. Any ideas or other suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.

Lloyd Alvarez from aescripts has a script called 3d-text-creator that does that. He demos it in this video starting about 20 minutes in:
AENY presents Lloyd Alvarez's After Effects Scripting Presentation

There's also a script called compsfromspreadsheet that will pull text and other info from a spreadsheet. I used this for an awards presentation with about 150 names, titles and photos and it worked great.
