I have a font with colored elements in it. However, they turn black and I can't seem to change it.

What am I doing wrong?

 

The font in question is the purple one:

AE doesn't support color fonts. You have to import such stuff as graphics from Illustrator.

I wasn't aware of that – I haven't ever needed to use color fonts. Thank you! 🙂

The font color is set using the Character Panel. 

 

Please spend some time in the Learn workspace and the User Guide. Just poking around in After Effects is a terrible way to learn how to use the app.

I know how to change the font color – I'm not just poking around.

As I've just learned, After Effects doesn't support color fonts, which is what was in question.

There is really no such thing as a colored font. There are apps that will pre-color fonts that are designed for web applications, but standard fonts have no place in the font code to assign colors. There are also plug-ins and scripts that will add Color or even designs to font layers, but font color is not part of the basic design of a font.

I've solved the problem and imported the text from Illustrator – Mylenium knew what I meant 👍🏻
