Script to change color hex
on Jun 11, 2017 at 5:14:57 pm

Ideally, I would like a script that can take all occurrences of a color hex in a project and replace it with another. Is there a way to do it? I think all of these are solids, text, or generate fill effects. If that is not possible, is there at least a way to do it for a single composition?

Color Control is what you need.

Create a null object, call it "Color Controller", or whatever you want to call it. Add your color control which is in the effects > expression controls.

All you need to do is apply a fill to all items you want to be that specific color and pick whip them to the color controller.

When you change the color then on your color controller, it will change all the items linked to it, with the same color.
