- Select a software application to create the spreadsheet that will be your data source. You can choose Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, or Numbers by Apple.
- Export your spreadsheet from the application to a TSV file. See the documentation for your spreadsheet application to learn how.
- When setting up your spreadsheet, ensure that the name of each dynamic layer within the project file corresponds to a column name in your spreadsheet.
- Depending on the dynamic layer, input text, paths or URLs to footage sources, or hex color values into rows under corresponding columns. Enter local footage reference paths relative to the path specified in the Footage folder field in the Templater panel under Batch Assets.
NOTE There are reserved column names that you should avoid using when naming dynamic layers in your compositions. Using reserved column names can cause errors when Templater processes your data source. See Reserved Column Names to learn which labels to avoid.
