After Effects referencing a spread sheet

Recommended Posts

I know you can refence text from and external text document but does anyone know if you could reference a spreadsheet.

 

Like for a project that needs localization have a different column for each language and change one parameter in after effects to have multiple text layers reference a different column

Scripting is going to be your only option here, as using something like #include is going to want the spreadsheet formatted like an expression.

Not necessarily. You can just copy&paste to a master text layer and write your own string mangling code in expressions as well. Depending on how much you need to parse, it could be slow as hog, though.
