Hello All,

My question is, how to modify the AE interface colors so it looks like this image? .

I've done my try and i only get to chage some UI element colors.

I did it by changing the color value of the "Hot Text" in the AE preference file (Adobe After Effects 12.0 Prefs.txt).

Sorry, which elements are you missing now? It certainly looks pretty close to me.

Is it just the colour of the layers? You can change that by clicking on the square to the left of the layer name that is the same colout as the layer in the timeline.

Anything else missing?

Thanks for replying...

Yes it's very close, but it's missing:

-Selected panel border
-Switches icons
-Current time indicator
-Work area

Update to the current release of After Effects via Creative Cloud (Ae CC 2014.1). This release from last month is where the new color scheme was introduced.

Thanks Walter,

The image I've posted is from the adobe site, it make me came with the idea of customizing the colors of those UI items.

What i really want it is not to have them blue but any color, maybe orange, green or white, maybe a mix, some elements in one color and the others in another color.

What i need is a way to modify it, maybe the way I've done(by changing the color value of the "Hot Text" in the AE preference file (Adobe After Effects 12.0 Prefs.txt), because AE don't have options in the preferences menu.

By the way, I've downloaded the free trial and in the creative cloud it says that is up to date, but don't show the variation or a way to do it.
