Below is how to change the colour of a shape in after effects based on the background colour at a given position:
Put a null on the position you wish to sample.
Put this expression in the fill colour of the object you want to change:
target = thisComp.layer("BGLAYER");
colorpicker = thisComp.layer("sample 1 null");
After getting some inspiration from the anders below I took some hours to learn how to possibly fix this issue. Although I am an amateur I hope that my experience can help others who stumble into this and know very little.
I use Adobe premiere Pro and I also have Adobe After Effects. I used both programs to establish a workflow that can do a suprisingly good ...
I would try using clone stamp or content aware fill to replace them.
You may need to track them first using a single point motion tracker, apply the track to a null, then parent your clone to that null.
Or go nuts and whack a great big lens flare on there instead :)
You can link objects in After Effects to .csv files (as well as many other formats).
For example, if you make a spreadsheet like the one below, and save it as a .csv file:
You can drag the .csv file into your project, then drag it into each comp, and then choose which line of text to use in each object using an expression like this:
That comp links to a layer in a comp called "Render Comp FHD" that has an effect called "Bg Color", which is most likely an expression colour control effect (found in effects>expression controls, they do nothing, but can be used in expressions).
You can create an expression like this by pick-whipping to the effect in question. If it's ...
The default iris on the 3D camera in AE is set to fast rectangle. You'll get better bokeh if you change it to hexagon, or higher sided polygon. You can also adjust the iris roundness. Double tap a to show the camera settings.
You could also add a lens blur effect to each layer and drive the blurriness via expressions. E.G.:
let dofFactor = 0.5; //how blurry ...
The default camera blur in after effects isn't very nice. You can adjust it a little by changing how the camera behaves in the Camera settings
A larger aperture value on the camera will give you more blur at closer positions.
You could try making the aperture larger, and then change the amount of distance between the text layers (and compensating with the ...
