I've been dabbling a lot with automated graphics in After Effects and have a few systems working really well. The New JSON feature is great, but it causes the render to be a bit slow in comparison to a script that loads a JSON file.
I use AERender that is timed daily to launch, it is launched using a bat or bin/bash file. Before this happens the same file compiles my data in JSON format. The great thing is you don't have to launch AE to change it's data, but by doing so it causes the render time to be a lot slower with the new JSON feature.
Is it possible to launch AERenderer and a JSON script without actually having to open up after effects in your script.
I'm trying to increase workflow that will improve export speeds, I just can't seem to figure out how to do, which makes me think. Is it possible?
