okay, so i'm working on this abstract animation and i was trying to add a new shape layer then tried to apply the change to color effect to get a transition from like red to pink, it makes the keyframes and shows the color transition bar thingie in my timeline but it won't actually play the effect when i toggle through it or ram preview it. what am i doing wrong?
what am i doing wrong?
You're using an effect when it's not necessary and then the wrong one to begin with. If it's a shape layer, animate the color directly as Rick suggested, for everything else use Hue/Saturation, Color Balnce, Fill or a gigazillion other effects. It might not hurt to read the AE help...
I have a question though why won't it change with the "change to color" effect though? also, how would i change a color from an object that i transferred from illustrator into ae?
