Hi, I am working on the generation of rhythmic montage sequences controlled by estheticly pleasing numerical ratios and sequences that are generated by experimental algorithms. I would like to be able to import numerical data to control start-frame,end-frame, fade in and out curves, effect modulation curves, etc. Is it possible to import numerical data into After Effects and map it to control various kinetic parameters?

You can import json data in Ae and link properties to it using expressions.

My free tool mamoworldJSON is the best way to get started with that approach

Alternatively, you can write your own scripts in After Effects that read data from files and modify your project accordingly.

Definitely the more complex approach. See here for the documentation of Ae's scripting API
