Corrupt Templater Downloads
danoakes last edited by
I have a Jot form connected to a google sheet that is able to upload photos. The url of the uploaded photos is uploading to my google sheet just fine. I set up a Footage folder just fine. My problem arises when Templater tries to download the files from the url links in the google sheet, Templater creates the [TEMPLATER DOWNLOADS] folder just fine, but the files inside the folder are corrupt and I am not able to open them.

@danoakes & @rikpare Apologies for the late response, but this is most likely happening if the image URLs don’t point directly to the file (such as a file with URL arguments or one that loads a webpage instead of the file directly-- Dropbox and Google Drive links are examples), if they don’t have a file extension in the URL, or if they are password protected. You can test the URL by opening a private browser window and pasting the URL into the address bar. If the file doesn’t load, it’s probably set to be private. If it loads in a frame (such as with Dropbox and Google Drive), then the URL won’t work. If it’s a matter of the link missing a file extension, if you add the correct file extension to the downloaded file, it will import, as the file is not corrupt, but it’s that After Effects depends upon the file extension to import a file. Any file without a file extension will not import into After Effects.
