If a project uses a specific color for a solid or text and you want to change it, is there some script that you can use to do it everywhere? If you use some color #FB17F8, I'd think it would be pretty easy to have a script change it to #568FG8.

I don't know of any to do it. But first, a visit to the local electronics store might be in order. Look at the various TV sets side-by-side. I'm sure you'll note that they don't display the exact same colors. If you seek to reproduce a precise color, that's commendable... but in the end, very few people will see that precise color.

you can use expressions on the effect-color control box. and if you use it pickwipped on everything, one color change will change everything.

Hey Walter,
I'm demoing this but it seems to have trouble getting a palatte when precomps are involved. I'd like to be able to just get a palatte of all colors that are used in a 4 minute composition. There aren't many. But I don't think this can do it. Have you been able to get all the colors used in one fell swoop even drilling down into precomps?
