Both Data Storyteller Charts and Data Storyteller Maps are part of the same installer! They are split up into two plugins because they require different settings and controls to be able to display your data correctly.
After installing Data Storyteller you will see two plugins under Vide Effects>Digital Anarchy: Data Storyteller Charts and Data Storyteller Maps. Apply Charts to create Bar, Line or Scatter graphics or Maps to display data in a US or World Map. You can also apply both, Charts and Maps, to the same timeline.
Multiple CSV files can be selected or dragged into the UI. You can also add additional files if a file(s) has already been uploaded. Data Storyteller only supports the upload of multiple CSV files even though it does support single Excel and JSON uploads.
Your initial chart will show in the viewer. Move the slider forward to see it! You need to move the slider because the chart has the “Timed Animation” default setting applied.
The Preview in the Data Storyteller stand alone app may not accurately represent the animation in the host app! There you can set keyframes and there are many more options than what you’ll find in the Animation Panel in the DSApp.
To see an accurate preview of the animation, playing it back in the host app may be required. The Preview window is meant to be a place where you can adjust the look of the chart, but animation should really be done in the plugin within the host app. It’s sort of a ‘draft’ preview.
The current release has support for After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Davinci Resolve.
