Project Item Labels


This script sets the label colour for all selected items as specified. If a folder is in the selection, the script will recursively search through and find all items within that folder.

Useful for when importing existing projects/AEPs, to set the label colour in one fell swoop for all imported objects.

So-- select some items (or an imported project folder) in your project panel, select the item types you wish to colour & a target colour, then hit the button and it'll do all the magic for ya.



  • Target - Choose what item types to colour in your project panel. Selecting 'all' will colour everything selected / everything in the folders.
  • Colour - Choose the label colour to set.
    • N.B. If you have custom-set label colours, they won't be reflected in this list. However, the label WILL update with your appropriate colour. This is a limitation on how label colours are saved in the AE prefs file; if it gets fixed, I'll update the script with a dynamic list of label names.
