    Thank you @Jeff, I guess I need to make my data a spreadsheet with worksheets that represent the nesting format. Then run Templater iterative for each worksheet to complete the process. Is that what you would do?

    I’m still on trial, trying to figure out how this would help my work-flow. I have been struggling to make my decision as I have already wasted quite a bit of time getting this to work with a dataset, and I am still unclear what product I would need for my use case.

    I am guessing for the replicate option to make the iterative instances as comps I would need the Pro version.

    I am going to make an assumption that you might be using Windows? Do you have any antivirus or similar tools running on your machine? If you do, can you disable it, then run the Templater installer again? We’ve discovered that some anti-virus will quarantine and delete a legitimate file that Templater requires in order to operate. If that works, you will need to whitelist a file in your a

    Thanks @Jon for this, I was experiencing the same issue on Windows 10 with Trend Micro Internet Security. It required me to install various times as the Exception List doesn’t mean much as it still blocks D_curl and D_shell libraries, I had to “open file” every time it flagged it.

    Hi there,

    I was wondering whether or not I could get Templater to parse my JSON. The issue is my data structure is nested as I am intending to make a clips with scenes and stages. So far in Ae the script says “changing footage layers…” I am not sure if I’ve misused the code or made my Ae file wrong. Would love to know. Here’s an example of my Data.

    [
    	{
    	"instructionTitle" :  "how to make a self-populating video",
    	"mainImg" : "img/geting-json-make-a-video.jpg",
    	"stages" : 
    		[
    			{
    			"slide": 1,
    			"name": "Intro",
    			"steps": 
    				[
    					{
    						  "duration": 100,
    						  "img" : "img/intro-01.jpg",
    						  "text" : "Start with  JSON file"
    					},
    
    					{
    						  "duration": 600,
    						  "img" : "img/intro-02.jpg",
