Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Automating multiple titles with data sets, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with Type (2014).
- If you've taken the time to set up…a well-organized lower third template,…you could take advantage of data sets,…which allow you to use that template graphic,…and then auto-populate it with contents.…Let's do this here, by working with a different area.…Now, I don't need these other cities,…so I'm just going to get rid of these three,…and press delete.…And what I'm going to do is rename this "Location".…So I have two fields, name and location.…Let's set the stacking order so it matches…a logical flow of first graphic, second.…
Now, I can create some data sets.…Under Image, I choose Variables>Define.…This allows me to choose what's happening,…and you'll see with the left and right arrows,…it steps through every layer in the document.…Different layers have different options.…For example, if there's text to replace,…so the Name one, I don't want to work with visibility,…but what I want to work with is Text Replacement,…and I'm going to call this, "Speaker Name",…just giving it a clear field that makes sense.…
I'll now go to the next one, for location.…
