Hi, i need to render out a video 500 times where the text changes in each render. 

 

So i am creating one video but i need to render it out 500 times, but each render the name in the text changes.

 

Is it possible to get after effects to work with a SGV or Excel file with the names listed to render out the video with each name variation in the text?

 

Thanks

Check out Templater Pro or Templater Bot from Dataclay.  The tool was designed specifically for what you are trying to accomplish.

Check out this video for understanding the data mapping and previewing process before you do a batch run of 500 videos.

Alternativey, you can create a script

to read an external file, parse it, inject the data from the file into the text layer, and resize the type to fit.

 

Hope this helps!

Templater, as Arie suggested, is definitely the most powerful and most automated solution. Another option would be CompsFromSpreadsheet

In contrast to Templater it does not automate the rendering process, but it can create 500 duplicates of your composition and replace the text in each of those automatically. Then you can render those 500 comps as usual.
