Anyone know how to use Creator to create smooth transitions from one color to another?

As title, I was trying to make an aura layer to hold a color, transition from that color to another color with a gradient, and then hold the 2nd color.

I can't seem to find a way to get it to go from the solid to the transition without it being smooth and seemless.  

The best I can do is use a rainbow effect, but that won't hold the colors long enough and there aren't enough stops to get a third color in there..

Okay, so after a bunch of screwing around with it, I got it to accomplish what I wanted.

The speed of the transition will depend on how long you need to make the effect bar.  At medium speed, 2 seconds, at the next faster speed, 1.5 seconds.

So, create a layer, with a static effect for your first color.  Add in a rainbow next and leave the stops at either end.  the left stop is the first color, the right stop is the next one. (TURN OFF GRADIENT)  Copy these 2 effect and add them at the end.  Change the color of the second static effect, and then change the color of the next left stop to your 2nd color, and change the right stop to the first.

We're creating a loop of transitions.  Once you get this working, it should be a smooth transition from on color to the next (and you can keep adding colors by repeating the process).

Now if anyone can help with getting the transitions to be blended and not stepped, let me know.
