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.

Effect Settings
username f
user_target AA
effect_class color_wash
effect_name COLOR_WASH1
window_degrees 180
start_color #0000FF
end_color #000024
frame_delay 100
sparkles 0
sparkle_count 0
show_frame n
seq_duration 9
fade_in 0
fade_out 0
submit Submit Form to create your effect
OBJECT_NAME color_wash

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.

Uh oh, your tree has a pixel out!!

(In the center about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom of both gifs) ;-)
