    Hey everyone,

    I am trying to animate the color of a text with a text animator using an expression selector.

    I simply added an animated slider value to the default expression selectors value, which gives me the desired animation.
    ofs = effect("offset")("Slider");
    selectorValue * textIndex/textTotal + ofs

    This is actually exactly what I want, it’s working perfect, but only for the color red (1, 0, 0). As soon as I change the color to blue for example, the offset doesn’t work anymore.

    I would like to generate the same animation, but with a different color, using the fill color property.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Marcus – this is definitely not related to the color value itself, it should work independently from what color is applied. Look for other flaws/mismatches in the setup, or share .aep for inspection.
