    @Roberto-Mardini You can add your comp to the render queue normally via AE’s menus, and it will render just the currently-previewing individual job data. The render-status column is only used by Templater Bot. If you still want to output a range of rows, you’d still need to adjust the start and end values in the Transport controls section.

    @Steve I’m not clear on the question you are asking. Could you explain more in depth what is and isn’t happening, and what you are trying to make happen?

    In case anyone comes across this topic later, it appears that jotform changed something about the way that they serve media files, and they no longer appear to be offering directly hosted files that work with Templater. There is a paid plugin called Uploadcare that I believe still works for file uploads that Templater can import.

    @simon_t apologies for the long delay. We haven’t been receiving notices for new posts, but I believe we corrected that issue. It looks like the video at the loom link isn’t active anymore. If you set a scale factor on the text layer, and make sure that it is within it’s own precomp that is the size of the text box you want, it should fit the text to the dimensions of the precomp.

    @Richard Apologies for the delay. Can you clarify your workflow a bit more? The master composition, by design, does not get affected by any of its children compositions. You may be able to use Adobe’s Master Properties, though we have not tried this.

    @vjn86 (and for anyone else reading this later)

    Yes, you can do this, but you will need to use expressions to accomplish it. You can set numerical values in your data, then map that data to a dynamic text layer in your project. Then, you can use a parseInt() expression to parse the value of the sourceText of the layer into a number that can be used in any numerical value such as position, scale, rotation, etc. See referencing dynamic text layers section.

    The Dataclay team has released Templater 2.9.5, providing critical updates to support Google Sheets as a data source. This new version comes in advance of Google’s retirement of the Sheets API v3, scheduled for April 9, 2020. For workflows that leverage Google Sheets as a data source, you must update Templater to version 2.9.5 before April 9, 2020. We recommend downloading, installing, and testing Templater 2.9.5 by the end of March 2020 to avoid a disruption in functionality.

    For workflows that use Templater’s command-line interface with Google Sheets as a data source, you must also update the data_uri property in your templater-options.json configuration files to address Google’s new requirements. To verify the value for the data_uri property, in Templater’s Google Spreadsheet Setup dialog, select a worksheet name. Use the Feed URL value for data_uri.

    If you find that the integration with a Google Sheets data source is not working as expected after installing Templater 2.9.5 by April 9, 2020, you may need to reset preferences in After Effects. For further help, please open a support ticket.

    In addition to ensuring continued support for Google Sheets, we’ve also included these improvements in Templater 2.9.5:

    • A live data toggle preview setting — You can enable the live data toggle to request live data when generating previews, or you can disable it to use cached data and speed up the previewing process.

    • Default visual and audio placeholders — Templater points to these defaults within the preferences if you don’t specify a placeholder.

    • Search functionality for locating a Google Sheets data source — It’s now easier to specify a linked worksheet.

    • Status message and logging improvements — A variety of changes, tweaks, and additions to make status messages clearer and more accurate.

    • Bug Fix: CLI checking JSON freed with headers — An issue has been resolved when passing headers values to access a JSON endpoint via the CLI.

    • Bug Fix: Retrieve the correct row within range during preview — An issue has been resolved when iterating through previews and the Start and Finish range values change.

    @sakodc Hi Sascha. Apologies for the delayed reply. Have you seen our Time Sculpting features? You may be interested in seeing the video on Time Shifting and Time Cropping.

    If the Time Sculpting features do not suite your needs, You will need to make use of Templater’s ExtendScript API. You essentially write ExtendScript code that makes use of Templater’s in-memory job data, and use that data to set specific layers’ In and Out points.

    You would use the $D.job.get("column-name") method to get the data from the job’s column into a variable. Then you can use that data to set an In point or Out point of a specific layer.

    Does this help?

    @Tasnadi-Otto Just to clarify, are you talking about pixel dimensions (length and width) or time/duration? If you’re talking about time, you can do what Arie suggested, or, as a workaround, you could set up your text layer(s) and have it mapped in multiple comps, each comp having a different duration, then use comp switching feature to swap between different precomps using the method shown in this demonstration.
