Map data to your After Effects composition layers
Mapping data between your data source and your layers is a simple process:
- Apply the Templater Settings effect to a layer. See supported layer types.
- Rename that layer to match the corresponding column header in your spreadsheet. In the case of JSON data sources, rename the layer to match the corresponding property key
- Repeat for every layer you want to make dynamic in your compositions.
For a conceptual overview and quick reference, read the Mapped Data topic in the online documentation.

Avoid naming any of your layers with any of the terms listed under reserved column / property names.
