Creating Custom Output File Names in JSON

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

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

  1. Create a new property key named output in each of the objects found within the JSON array.
  2. Specify the desired output file name for each object in the value for the output property key.

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