"We used Ray to manage our color workflow inside After Effects. I remembered seeing Sander van Dijk post a tutorial on working with color in AE. In tracking that down, I saw that he had just released it as a script, which made life easier."

“ In my mind this is a must have for every person working in After Effects. ”

How it works:
Currently all the colors in your After Effect project live in their own place, even if some elements in your scene have the same color. When you want change or try a different color it's almost impossible because you have to change each individual color of every element in the project. Imagine if all the elements that share the same color have the ability to be dynamically linked to one color source. This would give us many options to manage colors.
With Ray Dynamic Color you can assign a number to the elements in your scene with one click. These numbers can then be represented by any color.
