so i created a logo in PS and and i am animating it in AEcs5.
During the animation i realized that i need to double/duplicate a couple of the objects for hierarchy reasons. However now when i apply change color and pick the color i get nothing.
In the psd i am using color overlay on the same object.
Is AE honoring the psd specs over the changes i am making in AE?
Is change color not the right effect for this?
In addition to this it seems i can not get a white glow in this comp at all other than in the fake volume metrics you may see in the full comp. I want the body object to burn white as it is revealed and then return to normal. But I can get the white glow without using one of the cheezy plugs that place a frame around the effected object, and it cuts the glow off.
Change color has nothing to do with layer styles. They are a separate native layer property, but not all layer styles are editable in AE. Since they are rendered after effects the also void any previous operations. You need to read up on that stuff. Similarly, your glow issues will all go away if you pre-compose, which is also an important and regular workflow in Ae. Basics, basics, basics....
