Copying a color in a title (v10)

I'm using Vegas 10, I created 50 titles pages using black text. Now I need to change the text color in all of the titles to a custom color (created using the eye dropper). Is there a way to save the custom color and then paste it in all of the titles?

Thanks in advance.

Write down the RGB values. Now go to each title individually and change them to these new RGB values.

I've never found one. I was hoping for a change in version 12 but alas, not to be. :-(

For the new OpenFX titlers, a script could be written to do this. For the older Titlers, that cannot be done. In Vegas Pro 10, the titlers were not OpenFX.

Vegasaur might be able to do this so drop them an email and ask if it's possible.

Re: Copying a color in a title (v10)

Forgive me if i'm not understanding but isnt this really easy.
Put all your titles on one track, set Composite mode to multiply, put a Solid color of your choice below that track. Done.
If it is a very complex project and this isnt convenient , select all your titles,
drop them into a new comp,
add the color track and mask mode,
set markers at all events (make it easier to cut up on re import),
save as a .veg,
re import and cut up to get your individual titles again.
Again forgive me if I misunderstand what you want.
Edit; Even easier, Marquee select your whole Title track,
drop in new comp,
Use CC adjustment layer over the top, eyedropper the color you want.
Save as veg, drag into project.
