Hello, I'm trying to change andy model's color from one to the other by animating it. First off. I'm not really sure how to change the material nodes around and all that. When I try to nothing changes at all on the andy figure, even when selected.

For your case, you could click the animated property icon (key) in the simple color node, and in frame 1 set the color to blue, then go to frame 30 and set the color to red: ![animate simple color change 1.PNG](https://bw-1651cf0d2f737d7adeab84d339dbabd3-forumpro.s3.amazonaws.com/forum_12356/thread_2934031/message_4351905/file_e00da03b685a0dd18fb6a08af0923de0.PNG) ![animate simple color change 2.PNG](https://bw-1651cf0d2f737d7adeab84d339dbabd3-forumpro.s3.amazonaws.com/forum_12356/thread_2934031/message_4351905/file_7e7757b1e12abcb736ab9a754ffb617a.PNG)

The PoserSurface Diffuse_Color is already animatable as are all color chips. No need to add a SImple_Color node.


Renderosity forum reply notifications have been wonky in the past. I'm testing the waters to see if it's working now. If you ask me something and I don't come back, it probably isn't. (Updated January 17, 2017)

Thank you all soooo much!!!! I got it to work with my materials. I didn't scroll all the way over from the left side and saw a "User_Defined" Node that had RGB colors set and I was able to animate it!!!
