Create template allowing a new batch of videos to be auto-created each time I switch out text and a few images. The image/text swap bit is already worked out by swapping .txt and .png image with same generic name in project folder.
I’m under the impression this is trivial if the only difference between them is the render settings since I can use separate “take” per output setting, and tell it to render all takes. Will be digging into that when I’ve got a break tomorrow, but realizing now some of the templates are more complex.
In most of the templates, it’s not just the render settings that change, but rather everything is resized and moved around to best fit that aspect ratio. The ELEMENTS are always the same, but they are configured differently.
I was doing this in AE by setting up a different precomp within the same composition for each version where all the precomps draw on the same elements, then creating a render queue for each of the precomps.
Need to do same thing here where I swap elements once, and it renders out different versions where each uses those elements in different ways. I could just make different projects for each, but then I’d lose the ability to hit render once and have it do batch… plus I’d lose the ability to make a change once for something else like a material color and have it propagate across the various output formats. That last bit is important.
Is this still doable via “takes”, or is there something additional I should be looking into?
