how to change default mask color?
on Feb 18, 2009 at 8:45:41 pm

I'm pulling mattes from a mountain of greenscreen ftg and the default yellow masks are doing my head in.

Is there a way of changing the default colour? I know it can be done in AE7 and prior via the prefs file but I've yet to find a solution for CS3 (8.0.2).

I've tried nab's cool little script -- http://www.nabscripts.com/Forum/Scripts/myScripts/maskColorChanger.jsx -- but it has no effect on my comps. Must be for AE7, I guess.

Also tried the 'cycle mask color' switch in the preferences but it comes up with as many useless colours as useful -- still forced into manually clicking color swatch then sliding the colour selector, then clicking ok... too much clicking to solve something that should be definable by the user in the first place. Adobe, hear my pain!

Your words of wisdom are appreciated. Cheers.


Rugged yet hygienic.
