The final one we want to do is add our color fade to the word over here on the right hand side. So once again, let us add a brand new animated to this. Let us go down and adjust the fill color menu and let us go down and select at the saturation option. Now, if we want to adjust the saturation at this point, up and down, you will notice that you will fade in literally between white and red which are the color range limits between which we can saturate but we want to actually use a different color here. I only have it affect the word fade.
So first, we make sure we adjust the range select to all the way across to just these final four characters. Once we are up here in the composition window, let us double click to select the type and highlight just the word fade. If we now pull up the palettes once again, we can come over and click on the fill color icon here and go ahead and choose a fairly light blue. Just something that stands out in the background but it is definitely a different color between which we can saturate lighter and darker. Go ahead and click okay. Again, you can close the palettes when done so we have more room to play with and then just come back up to the selection tool.
Now, down under animated tool, currently there is no animation being applied to the fill saturation. We wanted to randomize so again, let us just quickly throw a new wiggle selector inside of that animator. I suggest the saturation up to around maybe 50 or 60%. So face will now do randomize that fill saturation back and forth giving us the ability to saturate to a darker blue and desaturate all the back down to a very light blue and even white depending on the value that you specify. So, there we now have three separate types of animation all contained in a series of different animators.
