Hey there everyone, I am simply wanting to alter an after effects template but am in No way A professional VFX artist. I know My way around AE a little bit but perhaps not enough to change these seemingly small things. I want to Make my Gold and White elements Silver and Gold such as in the example in the second picture down. I photoshopped it to get the idea across but Not sure how its done in After effects. Also I am wanting to alter the background or switch it out and Seemingly cant do that Very easily either. Is there something I am missing altogether in the file? Any help would be great, thank you!!!
A PNG is just one solid area of pixels. There is nothing to tweak in the manner you intend to. You have to sepoarate the elements first, ideally even retracing the artwork as vector outlines. Only then can you start applying different sets of effects to different parts.
