Change Color of One Letter in After Effects — EVF Tutorial

This tutorial teaches how to change the color of just one letter or word in a line of text in After Effects. I show you two ways to do this. The first way is for static, one-time change of a color. The second way is to change the color over time (aka keyframing it).

Check out a previous tutorial I made that shows how to do this for an entire line of text here.
