Is it possible to change a color of to white in after effects?

There is an object in a video I would like to change from green to white. But is this possible? There is the 'change to color' feature, but won't work for white because white is not a color. Since white is a wavelength, or there a feature where you can change the wavelength of something in the scene?

Hey, apply 'Change to Color' and then do the following - affect 'Change' and 'Change By':

Change - from 'Hue' to 'Hue saturation & lightness'
Change By - from 'Setting to Color' to 'Transforming to Color'

It might still not be exactly as you want to, but this will interpret more transforming changes, and chances are you could get away with this, by tweaking the tolerances below.

Okay thanks, this helps! So I was able to change the color of the object to mostly what I want. However, there is still an outlight of green around it. How can I get rid of that outline? I tried finding tutorials on it, but it didn't work and the outline is still there.

The thin stroke of green is probably aliasing from Change to Color. It's the one big downside of the effect. You could try adding additional Change to Color effects, but the simplest solution might be an Inner Glow layer style; setting it to white with a normal blend mode should cover the edges of your object, hiding the green.

Alternatively, you could use any of your favorite keying effects to pull a key from the object, reverse it (so you have just the object, and then apply a couple of color correction effects to turn it white. Then you would have a bit more control over what's getting the color change and what isn't (eliminating that halo you've currently got).
