Export XML from After Effects?

Is it possible to export an XML from After Effects? The rights team where I work needs these for asset reporting. A list of the assets isn't good enough since they need the data for how long each asset is used and in what order.

 

If exporting an XML from AE isn't possible is there anything equivalent to it that I could use to get the rights team what they need?

 

Thanks!

You can use the File/Save As/Save A Copy As XML.

 

This will give you an AEPX file that has readable data about footage and maybe even some other information. You should also save the file as a standard AEP file. APEX files have been problematic in the past.

 

I'm not sure if any of that data would help your billing department, but if they have been working with After Effects artists in the past, they probably have a workflow already setup for bookkeeping.

Thanks! Hopefully they can work with the AEPX file. 

 

"but if they have been working with After Effects artists in the past, they probably have a workflow already setup for bookkeeping. "

 

They don't. Everyone else in the department just uses Premiere so we're trying to figure this out.

Unfortunately the .aepx files does not work with Sequence Clip Reporter (the software they use to extract the file names, when they appear on the timeline, and for how long).

I don't think that's possible, you may ask some developer to create a script for you that can do this specific request

You can use the Bodymovin plugin and from the setting of file> AVD format (.XML). Hope this helps
