can material color be animated simply?

I need a material to redden for a couple of seconds.
I tried using a red light but of course it colored other parts of the scene too.
thanks all


You can select a colour, then press “i” while hovering over the material window and you can choose a property to key. To access the curves, choose “material” in the IPO rollout menu. I’ve attached a file.

edit: I should add that in this case the property I keyed was “RGB”

thanks very much-exactly what i needed to make the octopus blush!
