Reading a plain text file via expressions for .mogrt
on Apr 10, 2019 at 7:26:12 pm

Hello all - this is my first time posting here!

A while back I set up a workflow for editors at my work using a script to read in a .srt file and create a text layer with a pretty box behind it, and it's saved my coworkers a lot of time.

More recently I have been trying to eliminate AE from their workflow and move the whole thing into a .mogrt. I know Essential Graphics can work with .csv files and was hoping it could read in a txt file or .srt file as well?

Everything is working when I import the plain text srt into the AE project, it's easy to read via the .sourceText function, but once I export a .mogrt and try it in Premiere, it can't find the text file.

Any ideas on a workaround?

I know people use $.evalFile() to read in a text file as javascript, but working with a lot of editors I don't really have a lot of wiggle room.
