Changing text Color after using SourceRectAtTime()
on Jan 17, 2018 at 1:40:20 pm

Hey there.

I am working on after effects cc and I am using expressions.

This is for a social media project. Please find tutorial below:

It's a beautiful expression and really does cut down the time when I take it from AE to Pr.

The one problem I face is, I need to know how or is there a way to be able to change part of the text Color in premiere pro?

Because right now, what I need to change the colour in after effects, then bring it to premiere (where I obviously can't)

Is there an expression or a way to change it?

Thank you in advance

This is the expression on the size:
s=thisComp.layer("Hello people");

This is the expression on the position:
content("Rectangle 1").content("Rectangle Path 1").size/2

If you are on 2017.2/3? I think 2017.2 or higher. Use essential graphics and add a colour fill that you can change the colour of in Premiere.

If not, based on Evan's tutorial...Use fill still, but tie this in with a text layer and use a hex expression for the fill effect.

You could set up your "Text" layer (source text) add this to the expression

"0x" + text.sourceText;

Then when you copy and paste the hex code it will automatically add the 0x at front.

Then use this expression for the fill.

txt = thisComp.layer("Text").text.sourceText;
r = txt >> 16;
g = (txt & 0x00ff00) >> 8;
b = txt & 0xff;

Then like you change the names in premiere. Head over to the Master Effects Control and type in your hex code or copy and paste.

Alternatively, if you are only wanting a handful of colours like I do...I set up and if or else for 9 colours. So if I type red, I get the red I want and so forth.
