I like the clips in the Media Library, and I'd like to use one of the Motion Graphics - Intro Clips for my video. Can I change the default colors that are used to match my company branding? 

E.g. see below for the "Line Wipe" intro clip.

These seem to be grouped shapes. So it would seem that all you need to do is expand the group, click the element you want to change, then change the color via the properties panel on the right.

Can you tell us which exact color or whatever you want to change?

Cheers... Rick :)

Here is a compilation of images to depict the procedure.

First, extend the timeline so you can see what you are doing. Make the intro fill the available span using the slider. Click image to enlarge.

Then right click and "Open" the group. DO NOT chose Un-Group. That will remove applied animations and ruin the intro. You can hit undo it you chose ungroup by accident.

See next image
Open that group next.

All of these shapes are callouts. You will need to change their colors in the properties panel.Just use the timeline slider to follow the animation manually. Select shapes to highlight them and check their color in the properties panel.Change to taste.
Notice the blue callout  I have highlighted has a white outline. Pay attention as you go.

The animation arrows are easy to move accidentally with your cursor.Just pay attention and remember to undo any accidental moves along the way as they occur.
Because if you don't, they usually surprise later and and set you back. Or it's a glitch in your produced project and that's always a bummer.

I am trying to change the color in the blue box to anything else and I just can't. Its locked, the color fill is not clickable. Am I missing something?

Have you tried clicking the blue box in the canvas area first. That should highlight as well.
