Hi everyone,

I'd like to copy some text (actually programming code) with a multi-colors syntax, and past it into After Effects maintaining the multi-color style. Is it possible? (I tried, but in Ae the text has a unique color.)
Thanks for your help.

Sorry, but no. You'll have to highlight the pasted text characters and change their colors.

If it's a small number of colors, I recommend making small solids in the various colors you want. Then you can use the eyedropper to change text colors consistently.
