I am connecting a color attribute of one material to the color attribute of many other materials. This is because I want to share the same color input across multiple materials and only have to change the color once.
However, after I run my script which connects the source color attribute to the rest, each destination material shows black as the color.
The destination attribute doesn't update until I modify the source.
Once the connection is made, why doesn't the AE immediately get the new color and display it? It isn't until after the connection is made and after I modify the source attribute that the AE diplays the correct color.
Hope that made sense, thanks.
