Hello, 

How can I change the text color of multiple/all key frames in a single after effects layer?

I can place my playhead over any single keyframe & change its color but I have many keyframes that simply change the text in the layer & want to change the color of all of them all at once.

Thanks for your help.

Use a text animator for fill & stroke.  I'd use Hold keyframes to change the color instantly.  The animation from one color to another can look goofy.

What Dave said - make good use of text animators to keep it independent of the actual text formatting and easily accessible.

1- Creat a new text layer, call it NewText for example.

 

2- Connect the Source Text property of it to the Source Textof the Origenal text layer (call it OreginalText for example). do this by either clicking and draging the pick whip, or by using this code:

 

thisComp.layer("OreginalText").text.sourceText 

 

3- now you can change Color, Font and anything you want.
