Newbie Effect Programming Question

Just finishing my first major sequence (got my first 4 controllers and can't WAIT to get them all assembled and tested!)...

Question: can shimmer or twinkle be faded out? I'm sure it's simple and y'all who've done this way longer than me are thinking "duh!" (grin).

I want to shimmer my minis and have them fade out at the end of the song but I'm not quite sure how to accomplish that. I tried re-setting the intensity setting and selecting a 1-second segment each time (in essence "fading" from 100% down to 0)... but the animation still shows the shimmer at full...

I'm totally blocking on this one... thanks to any and all who have an idea! :]

With LOR I, you can not fade a shimmer or twinkle with a regular command.

Now, there are ways to simulate the fading of a twinkle or fade. However, I don't have an example with me, so I'll have to try and explain.

Create a timing grid (in the area you want to fade down) made up of very small timing segments. (.04 or .02) Now, create a fade down across this time. Then go back and remove random parts of the fade. I used this technique in some of my 06 videos. (Hippo for Christmas was on of them.)
