I have a linked collection with several objects and I want to animate hue value of one of the materials.

Following this answer I have a custom property linked to my hue driver and this works perfectly when used locally.

But when I link the collection in my final scene (separate file), I cannot access this custom property.

I tried this solution but I think it maybe only works with single objects in collection.

Maybe I am missing something ?

If you want to update (and animate) a material from a linked collection you just go to 3D viewport panel and select Object > Library Override > Make
