    Adding Drop Shadows To After Effects Templates

    kylel17274620

      Ok, this is a bit hard to explain.

       

      Lately I have been downloading quite a few kinetic typography templates from MotionArray, and for the most part, they have been awesome. However. Some of them have a colour comp where you can change around 3 primary colours eg. Text 1, Text 2, Background.

       

      That's all good, but when i go to add a drop shadow, no matter what colour I make the shadow, its comes out the same colour as the text colour control.

       

      How can I make a drop shadow that is not bound to the same colour as the text. I hope I'm explaining that right. I am trying to use the layer styles drop shadow. Please let me know if you need any screenshots/info on my end.

       

      Thank you!
