I'm going to have a bunch of text overlays in a 30 second clip. Is there a way (in AFX CS6) to link all of these together (with a precomp or other means) so that if I want to change the font or font size or text color, all of the instances of text (which will be different words) will update automatically?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Nope. Font styling cannot be linked with expressions nor does it have spearate property streams/ keyframes so it could be copy&pasted without affecting the text or animation. Only scripts can manipulate such stuff programatically. Check AEScxripts.com, perhaps there's something there you can use....
