Changing the Fill Color of a Media Asset

After uploading a media asset to a scene, you can change its fill color.
The color change can be applied to a logo, image, or video. The only requirement is that the asset have a transparent (clear) background. If the background is not transparent, the media asset will be covered entirely with the color you selected.

Note:

If you select a new color from the brand colors and then change that color in the brand configuration, the fill color of the media asset will also be changed.

For example:

1.

I select the soft orange color (Accent 1) for my new fill color.

This is the option that is selected by default.

  Tip!

If you try to change the color of a media asset and the placeholder is then filled with the selected color, this indicates that the background of the media asset is not transparent.
