I have a solid that I am working with, and it is animated. It starts out red and I need it to transition into pink. The issue (with using Color Change) is that when I keyframe red>pink, it uses a bunch of colors in between. I just want it to go directly to pink without fading through yellow, orange, blue, etc. Can anybody help me with this? I need it to fade into pink by the way, not just change instantly. Thanks!

It sounds like you're messing with the hue values. Since pink is just a lighter red, just use Change Color's lightness transform to adjust the color, which wouldn't involve other hues to cycle through.

To simplify, you can use the Fill effect instead of Color Change. That's just a straight fade between two keyframed colors.

Yup that did it, thanks for the help, I had been staring at this project for a few hours and eventually my brain decided it wanted to stop remembering simple AE methods haha
