Jarko Romanesko asks:

Can you perhaps tell me what the “color spiral button” is for and what the proper name is?

Larry replies: I’ve been waiting and waiting for someone to ask me this question!

Yes! This button determines the direction colors will rotate around the color wheel when you have applied keyframes to change the color of something.

For example, the left image illustrates color roation going from red to green to blue or, on the right, from red to blue to green.

I call it the Color Thingy.
