Fixing effects across multiple comps
on Nov 1, 2017 at 11:02:16 pm

I am working on some files done in an older after effects and they have the Fast Blur effect on them.
Because the expression says:
effect("Fast Blur")("Blurriness")/5

and not
effect("Fast Blur (Legacy)")("Blurriness")/5

I get an expression error.


This may be the case with 10-15 comps in the project. Is there a batch way I can update all of these instead of one by one in each comp?

Thanks

Adobe shipped a script that translates old blur effects to the new ones. Maybe give this a try?
