Is it possible to color label/rename different effect controls in AE?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it was possible to label different layers in your effect controls, maybe with a plugin or script out there?

For example, I'm in Plexus 2 and and I have over 10 different effect elements.

I can navigate it fine but the more complex my object the more searching (aka time) it'll take.

Anyone know of such magic? Thanks

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, can you clarify what you mean by 'label' (not just rename, right - which you can do by selecting the effect and hitting ENTER)?

Crap...I was trying to color code each control like you do with layers. Then, I tried clicking on the controls once like you do in finder to rename files but that didn't work. I have no clue why I didn't try that. THANKS!

Be careful of doing that with an effect like Plexus. I'm not totally sure but the way that Plexus reads its effectors and objects, changing their name might screw things up.

 

Renaming effectors and objects doesn't affect Plexus in any way. In fact, we encourage you to rename them and organize, since it can get really messy once you start adding things. The only requirement is to have the main Plexus renderer at the bottom of the effect stack.
