One suggestion... it would be great if there were a "Time Displacement" feature with regard to the layer that the Color Map controls are looking at.
I'm making some streaming ribbons with the plug-in right now. Each instance is using a different comp for the Color Map. Actually, each of those nested comps is the same, just offset in time a little bit. If I could offset the time, I wouldn't have to make numerous duplicates of the Color Map layers.
