BUG: footage("sample.json").sourceData doesn't work in Media Encoder
The sourceData property of any JSON file doesn't work in Media Encoder.
For example, create a JSON file with these contents:
"test": "You can't see this text in Media Encoder"
Then attempt to reference this JSON file with the following expression:
The text will only exist in After Effects.
Hey - same bug except the workaround does not work, unfortunately. Any chance I am missing something?
Thanks for filing this bug. We are aware of this issue, and there is a workaround currently available. If you add the JSON file to the rendering composition as a layer, the text / data should be rendered correctly in AME.
