Three awesome editions

Rig

Rig gives you the tools to prepare an After Effects project file for dynamic content. Map your data to composition layers and preview how those layers change as the data is processed.

Rig is perfect when...

  • Swapping content in your AE project takes too much of your time.
  • You need to prepare an AE project for a different machine running Pro or Bot.
  • You want to create an AE project compatible with Templater to sell or distribute as a template.

Pro

Pro ships with Rig functionality in addition to features that let you batch render or batch replicate re-versioned master compositions using your data source.

Pro is perfect when...

  • Your client has a database of customer information and they require a quick turnaround for many unique videos based on that data.
  • Your studio has multiple artists who need to work concurrently on different variations of a master composition.
  • You have purchased an AE project compatible with Templater and want to create many unique versions of it using your data.

Bot

Bot ships with Rig and Pro functionality and lets you build automated video systems. Check periodically for incoming data to kick-off new, unique renders. Or use the command line to push data in to create new renders.

Bot is perfect when...

  • Your client has a database of customer information and they require a quick turnaround for many unique videos based on that data.
  • Your studio has multiple artists who need to work concurrently on different variations of a master composition.
  • You have purchased an AE project compatible with Templater and want to create many unique versions of it using your data.

Use any data source type

Map your spreadsheet or JSON data directly into AE composition layers. Use Google Sheets in the cloud or tabbed-separated-value files exported from Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, or Google Sheets. You can also use a plain text file containing a JSON object array exported from your own app

Reference local or cloud-based footage

Footage sources for your dynamic layers in your AE project can come from local or cloud-based resources.

Apply spatial layout rules

When updating an AE composition with your data, Templater intelligently adjusts dynamic layers relative to their containing composition and other sibling layers. No need to futz with aligning, scaling, or positioning dynamic layers—let Templater craft your composition according to your layout rules.

Apply Time Sculpting rules

Use time-based rules to crop, trim, shift, and stretch layers using Templater’s patented Time Sculpting feature. There’s no need to worry about integrating footage sources of varying duration into a video template. Now Templater can maintain the design integrity of your video while processing footage of different lengths.

Use international languages

Insert characters from any language into your spreadsheet and see them appear in your text layers. Of course, installed fonts should have the glyphs you require. Templater reads your text as it appears in your spreadsheet, so commas, quotes, apostrophes, and new lines are accepted. Right-to-left scripts are also supported.

Save project-specific presets

Use project file presets to store the Data source, Footage folder, and Output folder references within your After Effects project template file for easy reuse.

Preview comps with data

With a click of a button, preview how your data-driven compositions will look prior to rendering or replicating. Iterate through previews of your render jobs to see how Templater treats different text, footage, and colors. Resolve problematic data quickly and effectively.

Log Templater activity

Want to know what Templater is doing at any given time? Inspect its log files for full transparency. Troubleshooting Templater has never been easier.

Batch replicate master compositions

Templater can quickly re-version a master composition with your data and replicate it so you can work your mograph magic on it before rendering. Replicated comps are kept tidy and organized within a clean folder structure. You also have the option to send replicated comps to AE’s render queue or the Adobe Media Encoder.

Batch render master compositions

With a click of a button, preview how your data-driven compositions will look prior to rendering or replicating. Iterate through previews of your render jobs to see how Templater treats different text, footage, and colors. Resolve problematic data quickly and effectively.

Batch render with Adobe Media Encoder

Send a batch of replicated compositions to Adobe Media Encoder to render.

Custom output naming

Set a custom output file name for each render job or replicated comp from within your data source.

Switch projects from data

If you have two or more template project files that need to make use of the same data, switch between AE project templates on a per-row basis within the same data source.

Run scripts hooked into Templater processes

Run shell scripts or use the Templater API to create and run ExtendScripts. These scripts listen for events that Templater broadcasts and hook into Templater’s processes allowing you to extend its automation capability.

Command Line Interface control

Engage with Templater processes through shell commands. With the command line interface (CLI), developers have unparalleled flexibility for integrating video versioning within their existing pipelines or systems. Most controls found in the Templater panel are configurable via a command line options file.

Re-version projects as a background process

The Bot for Templater operates After Effects for you. When The Bot finds new data, it triggers Templater’s customization and rendering process. Developers can create web or mobile apps that feed data into Templater’s data source, offering a collaborative, custom video content creation solution.

Process extremely large data sets

Use The Bot for Templater to automatically replicate or render data sets of a significant size.
