Something to mention. You can only do this if you are using SolidWorks as the renderer. If you are using PhotoWorks Animator will not support changing colors, materials or fading to transparent.

If you cannot do it in animator, a relatively easy way would be to output the same video sequence in each of the colors. Then, import them into a video editing program as and crossfade from one to the other - the effect would be exactly what you want, plus you have more control over the speed and position of the transition. Then save it in whatever format you need!

"What program" I hear you ask? Good question! On PC I have no idea :-)) but I am sure someone here can suggest something. On Mac, you can use the free iMovie software to do it.

Good luck!

I've done things this way before (with co-ordinated movements, not colours) and it works a treat, if a little time consuming.
