Not sure where else to ask this, but what happened to the color of the animations? For example, I use the Pixel Party opener and used to be able to manipulate the color quite a bit with the sliders, but now all I can get are variations of pink. Is there a way to get the old color change back? Or to modify the colors of the animations?
