ColorBob is a Color Pallet Tool for After Effects

Marcus Loeper’s ColorBob brings a color pallet workflow to After Effects.

Adobe After Effects. It has everything! Or does it? One thing that would be nice is a color pallet management tool like you would see in any other basic graphics package. Until then, have a look at ColorBob by Marcus Loeper.

This is ColorBob.

ColorBob is a color management script for Adobe After Effects. The script lets you create, import, and export color palettes as easy as applying them in your projects. The developer will also allow you to “pay what you want.”

Working with colors in After Effects is always a bit of a stretch. Twirling down a lot of layers only to get to the color property and then repeat this for your whole layer stack can take a while. Imagine, on your first try, it does not look how you want it to be. You have to start all over again. 

ColorBob is a tool that replaces the twirling with one click, and also changing the whole color palette is only one hit on the mouse button away. No linking expression that slows down your renders, just a script that does the hard work for you.

No Need to Worry About How Colors Work Together

You don’t have to create your own color palettes. Just import palettes others have created. It is effortless to import color palettes right from the Adobe Color website, or any other source. If you have no time for this either, let ColorBob create a color palette for you. ColorBob chooses from 8 different color schemes to create a random palette that is ready to use. Palettes can have a color count from 1 to 20.
