hey guys, i cant figure out how to do this, so perhaps you can help me. im sure you all have seen "3 in the afternoon". if not, here's the link to it via youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqr5G56UcqY
anyways, during one part, the characters are changing the color of their lightsabers. the lightsabers fade between color changes. how can you do this on effectslab?

Funny you should mention that, because I tried to do that same thing a few weeks ago. I used different-colored neon light objects with the same four-point shape, then keyframed transparency filters so that as one faded out, a different color would fade in. I didn't get it to work perfectly, but I didn't try real hard either. See what you can come up with by changing the transparency keyframes to overlap more.

Firstly add a lightsword effect, then add a hue shift grading filter to that effect object, and shift the color.
