as the title says…. how do i add a swatch library to after effects in creative cloud? i don't want to have to eye drop colors here and there, i want to keep a collection of my clients colorways. i saw the swatch script from video hive. is that good? does that only work with the said website? is there a way to customize color in that script?

thank you in advanced!

The Kuler panel built into After Effects is not intended to be the complete solution. It's just a step.

It's not free, but our Test Gear plug-in—in addition to adding a waveform monitor and vectorscope—adds a full Photoshop-style color swatch book. You can try out the plug-in as a demo which you can download from our website here.

(Disclaimer: My company makes and sells Test Gear, so I'm biased.)

The new Kuler integration (I just updated to 2014 today) is really useful but it's not quite what I'd hoped it would be. I use After Effects for vector animation and would find a swatches panel with Kuler built in - similar to that found in Illustrator - much more useful. Instead I'm having to position the Kuler panel in such a way that the colour scheme I want to use is visible so I can pick with the eye dropper, but I guess it's an upgrade from the print out of hexidecimals taped to my monitor!

I understand After Effects isn't really built like that, but it would make life so much easier if there was a swatch panel!

Thanks Todd. It's definitely a step in the right direction, and I'm really looking forward to exploring all the other new features.

I'll send that request through. Thanks!

I use to import in AFX, a color palette comp that I have made. No plugin, no script, free download.

in an additional step to alessandror1879048 suggestion, I found the new EGP handy in making a float swatch panel. simply dragging the color controls to the EGP, and now the advantage is that this panel is free and not occupied like the effects panel.
