what is QUE and how does it work?

Play Video

Scale and speed up data integration with a flexible, secure data source for your dynamic video content.

Introducing QUE, the optimal data source with an API to leverage the full capabilities of Templater to produce dynamic videos.  QUE frees you from the scalability constraints of traditional tabular data sources, such as spreadsheets, which become unwieldy as the volume and complexity of your video production needs grow.

QUE integrates four components

Delivering improved scalability, security and productivity to your video production workflow.


Autografs are representations of Adobe After Effects® projects with layers mapped to static and dynamic asset data via Templater. Dynamic assets — such as text strings, audio-visual files, and color definitions — can change from one video to the next and are controlled by QUE. You create new QUE Autografs directly within Templater’s Autograf dialog.


Jobs are sets of properties that can be applied to one or more AE templates. These properties include your videos’ customization data as well as configurations for how AE should render them, such as resolution settings and output formats.


Campaigns are collections of jobs that keep your data organized and secure. An agency, for example, might have one campaign for each of its clients, and could grant access to a particular campaign only to users authorized to work on it.


Satellites are unique machines running an instance of AE in your environment that interact with QUE via Templater Bot. You can specify which satellite will process each campaign or job, enabling you to allocate your rendering resources efficiently.

The advantages of QUE

Scale your data sources

You can use QUE as your exclusive data source.  It empowers you to consolidate dynamic video data from multiple internal or external sources. It can receive data from any app or service with its exposed API endpoints — mobile apps, web apps, voice apps — the sky’s the limit!

Secure your data

All data stored in QUE is encrypted at rest, and only decrypted when an authorized client requests the data. QUE features methods for field-level masking to prevent the unauthorized viewing of specific sensitive information, such as demographic or health data. No one — not even Dataclay system administrators — can view your masked data.

Extend your capabilities 

QUE includes an API that makes it easy to build apps that integrate dynamic videos. This opens a world of possibilities for exciting new customer experiences and entirely new business models. Best of all, you don’t need to be a software developer to use the API.

Monitor your operational metrics

For you “render wranglers” out there, QUE provides a dashboard to keep an eye on the state of your rendering operations. At a glance, you can see the status of each job, utilization rates of each rendering machine, when each machine was last active, and more.
