Replicate comps without producing new folders
In the screencast example for ‘Batch Replication’, Templater replicates the target comp with the new comp ID but also produces a new folder for each comp. Is there anyway to disable Templater from creating a new folder each time? Happy for the new comps to be placed in the ‘[TEMPLATER COMPS]’ main folder, but it would be helpful not having to pull the replicated comps out from potentially 100s of folders into another folder in the project. I am unable to test the ‘Replicate’ function in the trial version to see if this is possible.
@kientan Hi Kientan, unfortunately no, this is not an option out-of-the-box. However, if you had Bot edition, and knew a bit of ExtendScript, you can code a simple ExtendScript and register it to an “After Job” event to move the replica out of the folder. Here is documentation on how you can manipulate the project file during Templater’s processing.
Are you trying to render each replica? If so, you could consider using Adobe Media Encoder to render out each one automatically. Enable the “Send replicates to Adobe Media Encoder” and then project files will appear in Templater’s output destination. Then setup AME to “watch” Templater’s output folder. That workflow should work in trial mode.
