    I want to ultimately fade in the Alpha Multiplier on start, but can't seem to figure out how to get the properties within my code.

    The following give me an error of "cannot convert from 'float' to 'UnityEngine.Color'

    var myMaterial = GetComponent<Renderer>().material;

    myMaterial.SetColor("_AlphaMult",myFloat);


    Can anyone help?

    Instead of SetColor, use SetFloat. SetColor is only for colors.
