What is Templater Bot?
Templater Bot is an enterprise solution for custom video on demand. It works as an automated system. Use it to periodically check for incoming data, pull new data in, and render video as a background process. Or use the command line interface to push data in to create new renders. Once your AE project is prepared, use The Bot or the command line interface to customize and render it without operating the After Effects user interface. Developers can create front end applications, such as web or mobile apps, that feed data into Templater's data source, offering a collaborative, custom video content creation solution.
Purchase a 1, 3, 6, or 12 month license in an up-front transaction by adding this item to your shopping cart, or choose a yearly or monthly recurring plan. Templater Rig is included with all Bot subscriptions.
- Templater Bot activation and license verification requires your system to be online and connected to the Internet.
Submit a help ticket if your organization requires offline activation or floating license server support.
Why Use Templater Bot?
Sometimes you need to fully automate After Effects to handle the versioning and rendering of a master composition and then automatically distribute the output. Use Templater Bot to develop applications that can harness the power of After Effects. Reasons you might need to use Templater Bot in your organization:
- You need an efficient way to create anywhere from 15 to 15,000+ unique videos based on a data source.
- You want to automatically create a video based on web form input and run a script to upload it to a server.
- You want to integrate Templater into an existing automated production pipeline.
- You need to automatically run a script after every render job or after all render jobs are complete.
A single license of any Templater edition allows you to install and / or activate that edition on a single machine for one user. Before purchasing, you should verify that Templater will help your workflow by using it in trial mode. The trial lets you explore Templater Rig, Templater Pro and Templater Bot features with a watermark. After 30 days, all functions cease to work without a purchased license. For an additional fee, a floating license version is also available which works in conjunction with a Linux based license server. To inquire about a floating license version and server please open a support request.

Templater is a professional grade application—the kind that eliminates the worst of the tedium in post-production. Taking user feedback from the original release, we re-engineered our product line-up to accommodate users in any environment, from independent producers needing a single copy of Templater Rig to those working in studios and organizations running Templater Bot on dedicated server farms. What's more, this new model provides better sustainability for continued support and development.
