“Templater made it simple to version lower thirds so I don’t have to run 60ish exports out of AE.”
– JD Spivey, Creative Media Director, Gateway Church

Gateway Church Lower Thirds Example

Every week, JD Spivey, the Creative Media Director at Gateway Church in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, must prepare about 60 lower thirds of scripture to be superimposed over the weeks television broadcasts and DVDs. JD and his team have little time for repetitive drudgery ‐ and typing in, formatting, and then exporting that many graphics out of Adobe After Effects each week is one task that they thankfully don’t have to do by hand anymore. That’s because they’ve automated the process using Dataclay’s Templater plugin for After Effects.
