Question Animate from a color back to the original color.

    The behavior I'm trying to get out of Unity's Animator looks like this in code:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. Color animationColor =;
    2. Color originalColor = GetComponent<Renderer>().material.GetColor("_Color");
    3. //...
    4. renderer.material.SetColor("_Color", Color.Lerp(animationColor, originalColor, timeElapsed/animationTime));
    I have no problem getting the animator to Lerp between two set colors, but I would like to have destination color be the original color of the object. Can this be done with the Animation system?
