Hi Steve,
To avoid displaying intermediate states, you can combine commands on one line with semicolon separators, for example:

vop morph #0,1; volume #2 color khaki

See the general information on command files:

Another possibility in this case is to create the morph volume, color it as desired, and hide it before starting recording (before the "movie record" command), and just redisplay it later in the movie content portion of the script.

I hope this helps,

This results in a flicker in the movie with the wrong color. Any help/suggestions on how to get this set correctly? Let me know if there needs clarification - thanks!
