Parent different layers fill color
on Mar 13, 2018 at 6:16:17 pm

Hello everyone,

I have been looking but could not find an answer.

I would like to be able to change the fill color of different shape layer at once.
I imagine there is a way to link/parent the fill color property across different layer but could not find how.
Would you know, if this is possible-

Thank you for your help,

I apologize, if I missed something obvious
-Phil

You can add an expression to the fill color parameter (also the outline) and then pickwhip another shape layer's color. When you change the one that all the layers are pickwhipped to, they will all change.

@Steve Bentley,
Thank you for taking the time to answer.
That is exactly what I needed:
I did as follows:

1 - ALT + enable the color keyframe
2 - drag the pickwhip to the other shapes' color.

Attached a screenrecording of what I did, as others may find it useful.
Thanks again for the help,
-Phil.
