Some requests were for more simple effects. One was being able to just set the tree to a color.
My version is the tree will cycle from your start color to your end color over the seq_duration.


Here is Going from a blue and then going to a black.

The gif here is going too fast, if pasted it will show correctly (One more thing to debug)



I wrote a different way of doing sparkles on this effect, they fade in and out. The speed they flash is adjustable also.

Finally of the start and end color have a different hue, then i will blend them over the length for your seq_duration. I would keep the start and end colors darkened if you are using sparkles.
