    When in preview mode, whether testing in NWjs or Chrome, built in "Replace Color" effect does not display. When exported to NWjs or HTML5 or previewed in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, "Replace Color" effect functions as expected.

  • Works fine for me here in preview mode with NW.js and Chrome 57.

    Are you sure WebGL is enabled at runtime? Try displaying a text object set to the expression 'renderer'. If your system does not support WebGL, it won't display WebGL effects.

    Why the post?

    This is a 'closed' C2 post from nearly a year ago.

  • I think it was relevant.

    I was having trouble using 'Replace Color' in C3.

    I initially thought it was a bug too, it took me a while to find the solution.

    I used a third party search engine to find the two posts.

    I didn't realize it was closed until after I posted, it is very easy to miss.

    I did know it was about a year old though.

    I posted it just to help others as well, usually a link can prevent a few new posts.
