Ray Dynamic Color 2:

The industry leading Color Palette for After Effects.

Currently, all the colors in your After Effect project have a fixed value, even if multiple colors in your scene have the same color value. This makes trying a different color or changing one almost impossible because you have to change each individual color of every element in the project. Ray Dynamic Color not only gives you a color palette to color with, it can also create clever links between the color values in your scene and the color palette. This give us many options to manage colors. Watch the tutorials to learn how.


  • Color elements in your scene with one click using the Ray color palette
  • Color with or without “expression links”
  • “Link” and “Unlink” colors to and from a palette
  • Extract colors from your scene into a palette.
  • Change colors after they are applied.
  • Color shape layer strokes and fills individually.
  • Swap the colors of two color properties
  • Advanced color options to randomize and cycle colors of a palette
  • Compact, responsive user interface

- Replace Palette: "Alt key" + "Link Button"
- Import ASE file*: “Shift key" + "Plus Button”
- Export ASE file*: “Shift key" + "Alt Key" + "Plus Button”

*Using the ASE files can result in inaccurate colors in some cases so I highly recommend using an alternative way to share colors as suggested in the previous post.



User Manual (3 min):



What happens if I send my project to someone who doesn’t have Ray installed?

The links created by Ray Dynamic Color are done with clever expressions so they will still work even if you open the project somewhere else. You can also remove the expression links with the “Unlink button” to leave no trace of Ray Dynamic Color.

Can I use Ray on existing projects?

For sure! You can create a color palette out of the existing colors with the Plus Button. Then you can apply colors quickly using the color buttons. The colors in your project will be linked to the color palette with expression links so you can change the colors all at once.

What if I don’t like having expression links in my project?

The expression links are default but optional. With the “turn off the expression links” checkbox in the bottom dropdown, Ray Dynamic Color functions as a normal color palette just like in Illustrator.

How do I collaborate with people on the same project using the same colors?

The best way to share colors is to create a new color palette comp in an empty After Effects project, and share that with the team. Everyone can import that After Effects project and arrange the colors in the way they like and add new colors while working on the animation.

If you merge projects together, make sure that every color palette has a unique name. You can also unlink all the colors from every project before you merge them and then link them back to one main color palette to make sure all the color values of every color is the same.
