Mapped Data

Data is mapped to layers by marking them with the Templater Settings effect and matching their names to column names or property keys. When previewing, rendering, or replicating target compositions, Templater updates mapped layers with the corresponding column data at a particular row.

WARNING  For Google Sheets documents, Templater does not currently support column names that begin with a numeral, contain spaces, or contain underscores. Avoid these characters to ensure spreadsheet data will map to your layers.

NOTE  If you are using a JSON-formatted text file or a URL feed as your data source, property keys in JSON objects are equivalent to column names in a spreadsheet.

Data in the data source is mapped to dynamic elements of the AE project.
