Creating Custom Output File Names

You can set a custom output file name for each render job or replicated comp from within your data source by using an output column.

NOTE  For output naming purposes, values in an output column override values specified in an id column.

  1. Create a new column in your spreadsheet, and label it output.
  2. Specify the desired output file name for each row into the output column.

TIP You can use the concatenate function of your spreadsheet application to create output column values based on the values of other column names combined together.

TIP Avoid using a period character in custom output names to avoid AE output errors.
