I agree here, Gamma is the big one!  How do you get on with changing the colour of the object, say 
180 degrees if the object doesn't have sharp edges?

errr....  Could you explain this statement a little more...  I lost you!

I would have thought that you could do this now, just based on the luminance/colour of the object, 
so long as you haven't restricted its region.  I have to say that I don't use the key frames very 
often unless I am doing a special effect on one shot.  I find I can usually get away with "it" 
based on the lum/colour info!  Anyway, I presume you can copy the key frames from layer to layer 
and then modify?   

One more question for you......  Do you see a real difference between layering and windowing?
