Customizing an Output Module
We have specific encode requirements and would like to add our own presets to the Output Module. Is this possible?
Absolutely! New settings can be added to the “Render Settings” or “Output Module” through the existing After Effects tools located under the Edit>Templates menu. Once the new options are added, they should show up in the Templater panel once the “Load Settings & Module Templates” button is pressed.
As a quick side note, it might also be useful to use the
render-settingsreserved columns to set the output settings using information from the Data Source the project is using. As long as the data in these two columns match up with valid options in the “Render Settings” and “Output Module” options in AE, Templater should use them when each row is processed. This can be useful if we need to switch between different output modules on the fly.
Hopefully, that helps, but if you run into any issues, please feel free to get in touch, and we’ll do whatever we can to help out.
